Sky Blues striker Max Biamou revealed he is enjoying his football as he looks to work his way into the starting eleven.
The striker missed the majority of last season with an Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury, which means he had a long road to recovery to endure.
Biamou has featured for the Sky Blues Under 23s in recent weeks, as he looks to rebuild his fitness and earn a place in the first team squad.
Speaking after the Under 23s 2-0 win over Hull City, Biamou told how he knows his situation and will fight to get back into the starting eleven.
“I’m trying to enjoy my football at the moment.” Biamou said.
“I’m really happy at the moment, but I know how football is and I knew the situation since the beginning and I just want to work hard.
“I’m in the same situation as what I was in when I first came here, on the bench and then after a few months I started playing so I know my job and what I have to do to play and that’s why I’m working hard and at the same time enjoying my football.
“I know I need game time and I know the Gaffer wants to give me some time to get back.
“I know I’ve come back from a nine month injury and you can be frustrated when you don’t play, but that’s why you need to enjoy it and when you get game time, you need to try to score goals and at the moment I’m trying to help the under 23s, but I know my time will come.
“I’m trying to do my best every time when I play with the under 23s and even when I play, I just want to do my best and if the manager wants me, I will be there for the team.”
Sky Blues boss Mark Robins revealed there had been interest in Max from other clubs in the final weeks of the transfer window, but insisted he wasn’t looking for the striker to leave.
This is something Biamou echoed as he insisted, he will stay at Coventry and will fight for his place in the side.
“I never considered leaving, since the beginning I knew we would buy a new striker and Baka has been here since last season and I knew I would be third in the order but I just want to fight and be in the starting eleven and that’s what I want.
“If I went on loan that’s exactly what I would have to do at another club, so like I say I’m going to fight to be in the starting eleven and everyone knows how much I love to play for Coventry.”
Biamou isn’t the only player to have been recovering from an ACL injury, as winger Jodi Jones has also been on the long road.
Max told how he has been speaking with Jodi on a regular basis and is trying to help the winger recover from the lay-off.
“I’ve been helping Jodi. I’m in the same position as him because I’ve done my ACL twice and I know how hard it is to come back and get fit again.
“At the end of the day it is all inside your head, I know he’s working hard at the moment and he is doing really well and he needs time, there will be no rush for him and when he’s ready he will be there for the team to help the club.
“Every day I try and talk to him, and let him know that I know its hard but when you come back take your time and enjoy your football and your time will come.”
