Ryan Kent bids Sky Blues farewell after Liverpool recall

TALENTED midfielder Ryan Kent has bid the Sky Blues an emotional farewell after he was recalled back to parent club Liverpool by manager Jugen Klopp.

The 19-year-old impressed throughout his three month loan at the Ricoh Arena after making 17 appearances under Tony Mowbray.

His highlight came back at the beginning of November when he scored a wonderful curling shot in a crucial 4-3 victory over Barnsley at the Ricoh Arena.

Kent received a standing ovation from his team mates and staff in the dressing room following his final game against Crewe on Saturday, and he was also given a signed shirt.

After Saturday’s match he tweeted: “Thanks To Everyone Associated With @Coventry_City – Great Football Club, Wish You All The Best For Remainder Of The Season #Promotion #PUSB.”

Team mates also paid tribute to his talent, with Jacob Murphy tweeting: “Gutted to see @ryankent_10 leave huge talent who’ll go onto massive things! See you on the other side!”

And fellow teenager James Maddison added: “Also all the best to the bro kenty! Been a pleasure lad! Keep an eye out for this one, boys a player.”

Kent looks set to make his full Liverpool debut against Exeter in the FA Cup this Friday with Klopp struggling to cope with injuries ahead of a busy league and cup fixture schedule.
