FIRST WORDS: Bright Enobakhare

Here's what Bright had to say after joining the Sky Blues...

14 July 2021

The Sky Blues confirmed the signing of attacker Bright Enobakhare on a two-year-deal yesterday afternoon.

Enobakhare re-joins the Sky Blues two years after departing following the end of his loan-spell during the 2018/19 season, where he scooped the Young Player of the Year award.

Since then, Bright has gone on to play for Wigan Athletic, AEK Athens and East Bengal, the latter being his most recent club.

Upon the completion of his deal and finalizing his return to Coventry, Bright told how he is pleased to finally make his comeback.

“It’s good to be back and see the manager, the staff and the players and I think it will be a good season for us.

“The first time I came back through the gates they all the memories came back, but for me this is a new beginning.

“Hopefully, we can get our heads down and focus on getting as many points as possible in the league.”

The 23-year-old spoke about his fond memories he had of playing for Coventry during his first spell with the club.

Bright scored six goals in 18 appearances in front of the Sky Blue Army and he revealed how he is looking forward to playing in front of them once more.

“I remember all the goals I scored, especially the first goal I scored against Gillingham which was a great time for me and this season I hope to do more.

“England is where I want to be because I think it is the best league and that is where you want to be playing because it is everyone’s dream so it is good for me to have this opportunity to come back to Coventry.

“I think the fans will be happy to see me. I think they will be seeing a different Bright as I feel I have improved, and I hope it’ll be a good season for us.

“We’re going to have fun and it is going to be a great year for us and there are going to be a lot of memories from this season.”

Arriving back at the Sky Blue Lodge for the first time since 2019, Bright had time to speak with Manager Mark Robins.

Enobakhare revealed Robins had set him a target and he is relishing the opportunity to get back out on the pitch and reach those aims.

“He (Mark Robins) said he’s pleased to have me back. Every time I see the Manager, he likes to set a target for me which is good for me to improve my game.

“I had already said that to him that I have set a target myself, like when I came from Wolves to Coventry I set a target, so we will see if I can reach that this time round.”
