Shrewsbury manager Steve Cotterill is re-admitted to hospital after suffering from Covid-pneumonia – just weeks after leaving intensive care where he battled with the virus

Shrewsbury Town have confirmed that manager Steve Cotterill has returned to hospital after suffering from Covid-pneumonia.

Shrewsbury’s assistant manager Aaron Wilbraham insists Cotterill will get through this latest diagnosis after being re-admitted over the weekend.

‘For somebody who has never missed a day’s work in his life, this will hit the manager really hard,’ Wilbraham told the club’s official website. ‘He’s one of the strongest and toughest people I know, and I know he’ll get through this Covid-pneumonia.’
