"I think it was a great decision to come to a club like Coventry, I am really enjoying myself."- Coventry City’s Ryan Kent

4 November 2015

Kent notched his first goal for the club and is hopeful to continue adding more goals to his game in the remainder of his loan spell...

Coventry City’s Ryan Kent was delighted to finally get off the mark for City at the Ricoh, and believes he is at the right club to continue his development. 

The Liverpool loanee finally added a goal to his impressive attacking displays with a wonderful curled effort from just outside the area, in the second minute of last night’s 4-3 win over Barnsley.

Kent has made nine appearances for Tony Mowbray’s men this season, going close multiple times in those games, but that first goal finally came last night.

"It was a great feeling and a great moment for myself," he said.

"Since I have been here at Coventry that’s something I have needed to add to my game, I have had quite a few chances to score and it finally came.

"As soon as it left my foot I knew it was a goal. I shaped it well and I was happy to see it in the back of the net."

Since his arrival, Kent has impressed many with his attacking talents, bringing flair and excitement to City’s midfield.

The 18-year-old believes the team poses a variety of attacking players, all very capable of taking the game to the opponent, while also expressing his satisfaction with the choice to join City, as it is the perfect club for him to grow.

He continued: "I am really enjoying myself. I think the fans and everyone associated with the club have been really good to me. I think everyone has been in great form, and the attacking players have shown what they are capable of in the last couple of weeks.

"It was a great decision to come to a club like Coventry, with the background the club has of playing attacking football, it suited me. Since I have been here, I am really enjoying myself. I think the fan-base is great here. We started the season well and are playing good football."

Kent will not be available to play this weekend and will then go onto play for England Under 20s in France during the week. 

But he will return in time to be in contention for the top of table clash against Gillingham and will be looking forward to add to his goal tally.
"I can’t wait to get back and hopefully add more goals to my game, it's something I've been trying to work on," he said.
