Former Coventry City manager John Sillett, who guided the club to FA Cup victory in 1987, has died, his family have announced in a statement.
Sillett managed the Sky Blues between 1986-90 and was at the helm when the club beat Tottenham 3-2 in the final at Wembley for their first major trophy.
Southampton-born Sillett was a full-back who began his career at Chelsea in 1954.
He played over 100 games for them and won the First Division title at Stamford Bridge in the 1954/55 season.
He returned to Hereford for a second spell between 1991 and 1992 after leading Coventry to the only major honour in their 138-year history.
A statement from Sillett’s family said: “Obviously the family are really saddened by dad’s passing but we are all so proud of him and what he achieved.
“His ability to spot things tactically, change them during a game and enhance the abilities of players was top class. The respect he had from top people in the game and the kind words we have already received already underline the high regard in which he was held by the football world.”
