Coventry City midfielder Franck Moussa hopes to extend his stay with the club following his first goal for the Sky Blues against Hartlepool United.
The former Southend United midfielder played a crucial role in the emphatic win over Hartlepool and scored the City’s fourth goal when he drilled home after a brilliant counter-attacking move.
The 23-year old currently has a deal which runs up until January but he says he would welcome the possibility of extending his time with Coventry.
Answering whether he would like to stay with Coventry, Moussa said: “Yes. Yes, I would like to stay. It is a good club with good people in and around it.
“If we can get performances which are like what we saw on Saturday, it will definitely help me to stay here.
“But this isn’t something I can put my mind on too much otherwise I am going to lose focus with the reason of why I am actually here. I need to focus on my game and make sure I am producing my best for the club.
“It is in the club’s hands really. I go out there and I try to perform as best as possible. I hope I can produce my best personal performances as I haven’t started every match so I need to make sure I stay in the team to help my chances.”
Moussa has had to fight for his place in the side with Adam Barton, Gary McSheffrey, John Fleck and Carl Baker all looking to play in the attacking midfield position.
Despite not starting every game, Moussa said he hasn’t been left frustrated by the situation.
He added: “There has been a few up’s and down’s in my time here but more recently, I have had quite a lot of game time and that has been really good.
“When I have been out of the team, I haven’t been frustrated about it. That is part of football and everyone has to play their part, especially when you have a squad like ours.
“I will be looking to make an impact in the coming weeks. I have never been really frustrated about not starting as I have always been in and around it.
“I am making sure I can make a difference in the games and I did that at the weekend so I am really happy.”
