INTERVIEW: Wesley Jobello reacts to joining Coventry City

15 June 2019

Wesley Jobello completed his transfer to Coventry City this week, and was delighted to make the move to England.

Wesley will join Coventry City subject to international clearance and subject to the approval of the FA and the EFL, from Gazelec Football Club Ajaccio for an undisclosed fee.

"I am very happy to have signed here," said the 25-year-old.

"I hope it’s going to be a good season and I hope we are going to get promotion into the Championship."

The move to the Sky Blues represents a new challenge for the Frenchman, in a new country and a new language.

"For me it’s new, it’s a big challenge. I have never been abroad. I know that England is good for me and my game, and the supporters too. Also for the qualities I have, I hope I have a good season and that everyone will be happy at the end of it.

"It is my dream to play in England. Compared to my qualities, I think this is the league that suits me the most. I hope we will do very good things together."

Manager Mark Robins described Jobello as 'a very exciting attacking player, who has great footballing attributes and pedigree', and the man himself concurs. 

"I am fast, I like a fast game. I am pretty comfortable on the ball, and then after that I’ll leave you to judge for yourself on the pitch."

Asked to give a message to the supporters, Jobello said:

"All together we will try to have a good season, for us to be in the Championship next season."
