INTERVIEW: Max Biamou Talks First League Goal and Swindon Win

The striker helpe the Sky Blues on their way to three points against Swindon...

22 January 2018

This past weekend saw Mark Robins side rise back into the play-offs, courtesy of a 3-1 win against promotion rivals Swindon Town at the Ricoh Arena.

Marc McNulty bagged himself another brace during the game, but only after Max Biamou  got the goal scoring under way, when he scored his first league goal for Coventry City in emphatic fashion.

The striker had found it difficult to find the back of the net this season, but you wouldn’t have been able to tell, when he rifled in a shot from outside the box into the top corner.

In a frustrating time for Max, he spoke of his delight at finally getting off the mark for the Sky Blues in league action.

He said: “It was a fantastic goal and it is my first goal in the league so I am very happy for that, but the most important thing is the victory, so I am happy.

“I was so frustrated that I didn't score in the league.

“Some people were waiting for that to happen and now I’m happy and I now need to keep working hard to score more goals and work hard to help the team rise up the league.

“Sometimes it’s difficult as a striker when you’re not scoring goals because now in football statistics are very important.

“So, if you win the game, some people can say yes we win the game and Maxime helps the team to the win and sometimes if you lose the game they can say, he doesn’t score and it’s his fault.

“But, you have to stay focused and keep working hard in training sessions and in the game and then the goals will come.”

During his time without finding that elusive league goal he was looking for, Biamou admitted he had been putting in extra shooting practise to help him.

Also, he has had the guidance of former striker and Sky Blues boss, Mark Robins, something Max has been grateful for.

“The manager said to me to stay relaxed and the goal will come.

“I need to listen to him because he was a fantastic striker and he helps me to be better and to work hard.”
