A message from Lee Johnson

"I am deeply saddened by my departure as Head Coach of Bristol City. I have spent the last four-and-a-half years ’all in’. I consumed myself with all sections of the club and loved every minute of it!

"I would like to thank Steve and Maggie Lansdown, as well as the Lansdown family, for giving me the opportunity to manage such a great club, realising a personal ambition of mine.

"Thank you also to the Board of Directors for their strong support throughout.

"A special mention to Mark Ashton who I have enjoyed an excellent day-to-day relationship with, both as a friend and a colleague.

"At Bristol City I have worked with a fantastic staff and shared so many great times in my tenure. I am extremely proud of the work done. I will never forget the scenes of a packed Ashton Gate and the fans waving their metallic style red and silver flags in the semi-final of the Carabao Cup versus Manchester City.

"As a collective I thank all staff, past and present, for their efforts and commitment to the cause.

"Thank you to the players for their attitude and application in training. The culture and learning environment we have created has allowed us to trade, nurture and compete. The club has a great future with many young talented players on the books.

"On a personal level, it has been an honour to manage Bristol City Football Club and now is the time to move on to a new challenge. I am excited for my next adventure, when the opportunity arises and the timing is right.

"Finally, a thank-you to the fans. During nearly 10 years at the club, over two spells, I have met many wonderful Bristol City supporters and have always had brilliant interactions with the passionate people in and around the city. Thank you for the way you have treated me and my family.

"I wish the club, my successor and everyone connected with Bristol City every success in the future!

"COYR"
