In 2016, former Coventry manager Gordon Strachan revealed at a charity event that he moved Whelan into his home during his time as a player at the club to stop him going to jail.
He was advised by the police to keep a close eye on him after a string of altercations, saying that the next time they picked him up he would be going to jail.
Strachan went onto say that he had learnt a lot from his time managing Whelan, as most problems he had to deal with as a manager in later years he had already experienced with the player.
