INTERVIEW: "I've Come Here To Score Goals"

Godden joins the Sky Blues on a three-year-deal...

6 August 2019

Latest summer signing, Matt Godden revealed he is coming to the Sky Blues to 'score goals'.

The striker agreed a three-year-deal from Peterborough United and becomes the eleventh signing during the summer transfer window.

Godden spoke earlier today about what City boss Mark Robins is expecting from him and what he expects from himself.

He said: “The Gaffer explained what he expects and wants from me.

“He knows what sort of player I am, and I made it clear to him that I’ve come here to score goals and he’s watched me a lot and knows exactly what I’m all about.

“I won’t stop and that’s the way I’ve always been, and the Gaffer said that about me today.

“He said he knows I’m an honest guy and he said we just need to control that because we don’t want me to wear myself out, but it’s just the way that I play.

“I don’t stop running and I don’t give defenders a moments rest and that’s me really.”

Last season the striker scored 18 goals in all competitions for the Posh, in his first season in League One.

However, Godden revealed he wanted to move away from the ABBAX Stadium and when he heard of the interest from the Sky Blues it was a ‘no brainer’.

“It’s happened very, very quickly.

“I first heard about the interest on Saturday and I got the call from Peterborough saying they were willing to let me go as much as they didn’t want to.

“I had made it clear; I had a good chat with the manager at the end of the season and said I wanted to be playing regular football.

“The age that I’m at now, I think that’s important and when a club the size of Coventry comes in for you, it’s a no brainer really.

“I didn’t want to drop out of League One, I’ve got ambitions of playing in the Championship and playing as high as I can.

“Coming to a club the size of Coventry, it’s a Premier League club and to come here and have the opportunity to better the league position they had last year and try push up to the Championship is something I wanted to do.”
