'I want to impress for next season'

City midfielder Franck Moussa wants to keep his place in the side until the end of the season...

Coventry City midfielder Franck Moussa believes everyone in the squad is already looking to impress manager Steven Pressley for next season.

The Under-21s side continue to impress with Josh Ruffels, Billy Daniels and Conor Thomas all looking to figure in the last three games of the season.

The Belgian midfielder has made 43 appearances for the club this season despite joining the club in late September.

Moussa hopes to keep his place in the side in the remaining three games and he has been impressed with the quality of talent throughout the squad.

The 23-year old said: "I think the three games remaining present a good opportunity for the players to look ahead to next season and begin showing the boss what we can do.

"We love playing football and I am looking ahead to the games as I am doing something I love. I get to play football every day and it is something I love doing.

"It is also a privilege so you shouldn't waste any time you have out on the field. I am sure the manager will want to try a few different things but I hope I am still in the side.

"There are some really good young players here who are constantly working hard in training. I think that is why people are working hard right now as they want to be part of what is happening next season."

The former Southend midfielder signed a new 18-month deal in January which takes him up to the end of next season.

The midfielder went on to refute claims the players will take it easy in the last three games of the season.

He added: "There will be no temptation to do any less on the pitch or on a match-day. We are footballers and with the fans turning up each game the way they have this season, we will be motivated.

"We want to end the season on a high which will always lead into how we prepare for next season. As players, we are not going to relax in the way we approach games.

"It is a case of doing as well as we can for the club and also the manager. The hunger to play is still there in every player and that should be all you need to do your best."
