INTERVIEW: Jordy Hiwula Talks Oxford and His Song

The Sky Blues striker is the top scorer this season...

22 March 2019

Jordy Hiwula admitted he is enjoying life with the Sky Blues, as they get prepared to take on Oxford United at the Ricoh Arena this weekend.

Hiwula is currently the top goalscorer at Coventry City with nine goals in all competitions and has enjoyed a successful spell in the side as of late.

City are currently one point within a play-off place in League One and the 24 year-old is looking forward to playing his part in the final run in.

He said: “It is really good at the moment, we have got some good results from some good teams, so we feel we can beat anyone in this league on our day.

“The atmosphere is good, the lads are getting on really well and you can see it on the pitch, everyone is enjoying playing with each other, so it’s really good.

“We feel like we can win every game we play, so we got to play oxford tomorrow and try and get three points, then on to the next one.

“There is a chance, but we have to take each game one at a time, we know tomorrow is going to be a big and we don’t know what could happen by the end of tomorrow.”

Hiwula has scored three in the previous seven results and has struck up a good relationship going forward with the likes of Amadou Bakayoko, Bright Enobakhare and Luke Thomas.

Another relationship which has continued to blossom in recent weeks, is that of Jordy and the Sky Blues supporters.

Hiwula’s name has been heard singing from the stands and the striker acknowledged the chants in his pre-match interview with the local press.

“It is a good feeling when you hear the fans singing your name and it only spurs you on to do better, so hopefully they can carry on singing my name.

“I’ve picked it up until the middle part and then it sort of fizzles out, but it seems like a good song and I can see they all enjoy singing it.

“I’ve not had a song before in my career so it’s a good feeling when you hear them singing your name and hopefully, they carry on for the end of the season.

“I must be doing something right for them to be singing and I know Baka has got one as well, but all the boys are doing but we just need to keep working hard.

“Accrington was the first time I heard it and I was like ‘wow’ and now they’ve carried on signing it.”
