'I made the right decision signing here'

2 May 2013

City midfielder Franck Moussa reflects on the 2012/13 season and looks forward...

Coventry City midfielder Franck Moussa believes he made the 'right decision' signing for the Sky Blues this season and hopes to continue his progression with the club next season.

The 23-year old signed for the club on an initial short-term deal in September and after impressing in the first team, signed an 18-month extension in January.

The Belgian midfielder went on to make 46 appearances this season, scoring six goals including the equaliser against Notts County on the final day of the season.

Speaking at the End of Season awards dinner where he claimed the Goal of the Season award for his goal at MK Dons, Moussa said he was happy he waited for a club like City to come in for him.

Moussa commented: "When I was out of contract, the situation I found myself in was that I had plenty of interest from a number of clubs.

"But I kept delaying it hoping a few bigger clubs would come in for me. When Coventry approached me to sign, I guess it was exactly what I had been waiting for.

"I had rejected a few places so I am happy that paid off. I knew coming to Coventry would be a great opportunity for me so I grabbed it with both hands.

"It was a very good decision that I made and I am glad to be here. Hopefully, we can build on this season and push on next season."

Doncaster Rovers and Bournemouth, two sides which City grabbed maximum points against, claimed the two top spots in League One which sealed their promotion to the Championship.

Moussa admitted it was frustrating to see sides Coventry have beaten go up, and hopes the Sky Blues will be more consistent next season.

He added: "When you see the top two and how we beat them, it just begs the question, what sort of season could we have had?'

"If we had a little bit more consistency and maybe there was a few other things we could have tweaked, it could have been a different story.

"Some of the results this season have said a lot about the quality in this team and what this team could have achieved, but it wasn't to be.

"We have to now turn our attention to next season and take the benefits from this year, and bring them forward. 

"Like I say, I am really happy to play as many games as I have and I am honoured to play for the club."
