INTERVIEW: Tony Andreu Reacts To Scunthorpe Defeat

The midfielder opened the scoring...

5 August 2018

Sky Blues midfielder, Tony Andreu says him and his team mates needed to be more clinical in front of goal in Saturday’s defeat to Scunthorpe.

City hit the woodwork three times during the game, with Andreu himself, Abu Ogogo and Tom Bayliss all coming inches away.

Scunthorpe came away with all three points after cancelling out Andreu’s opener, but the midfielder said there were positives to take forward.

He said: “It was our first game in League One, we have to take the positives going forward and hopefully we will turn the performance into results and get points.

“We could have scored three or four goals if we were clinical, but we weren’t and they were.

“They scored goals on the counter attack and they killed us and we were a bit deflated and it was hard to come back, so it’s a shame but there’s positives to go forward with.

“We created a lot of chances with Jordy, Tom and Max, I thought we did well, but we have to be clinical and like I say and we weren’t.

“But, it’s good were creating chances, we just have to put them in the back of the net.”

Tony missed the majority of last season after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury, which he sustained back in September of 2017.

After a long rehabilitation process, the midfielder made an immediate impact in his first game in 11 months, as he curled a free-kick into the top corner to open the scoring.

Talking about his injury, Tony praised the staff at Coventry City for all their help in getting him back to fitness.

“Since I came back I haven’t felt anything about being worried at all. From the start I was ready to go, my fitness may not be 100% but I don’t think about getting injured.

“It’s been ok to be fair. It’s hard having a big injury, but I was positive because I knew I wanted to come back stronger and the staff have been great they have been with me every day and we did a great job.

“You have a couple of bad days, but like I say, the staff were top class and that really helped me and to come back.”

Talking about his goal, Andreu said: “To be honest I have been taking them in training for a couple of months to get the feel of it and it was probably the best position for me.

“I like to take it from this distance and I knew it had to go over the wall and it did and it went into the back of the net so I’ll take that.”
