He wore short shorts!
The 55-year-old Dutchman, who had spells in charge at Hamburg and Ajax after being unceremoniously dumped by Spurs in 2007, first arrived in 1982 as a player for West Bromwich Albion.
After two years at The Hawthorns he switched to Highfield Road alongside another of Bobby Gould's new recruits, Bob Latchford.
A powerful midfielder, he logged only 15 league games for the Sky Blues before returning to Holland to complete his career where it started, at ADO Den Haag.
But he will be remembered by City fans for the beard that complemented his receding hairline and the shorts which bordered on the obscene at the best of times and looked all the more, well, Continental when he was assuming the resting position with Martin Singleton during a pre-season training session.
