INTERVIEW: Viktor Gyökeres Peterborough Reaction

The striker reflects after bagging a brace to help extend the Sky Blues unbeaten Coventry Building Society league record…

26 September 2021

Sky Blues top-scorer Viktor Gyökeres claims the fans have played a big part in both his and City’s great start to the season.

After dominating much of the first-half, the Sky Blues found themselves level with visitors, Peterborough, at the break.

Three quick-fire second-half goals, including a Viktor Gyökeres double, ensured City walked away with all three points and the striker reflects on another winning night in Coventry.

“It was a nice game tonight, I really enjoyed it.

“I didn’t have the chances in the first half, but I think we had chances as a team and maybe we could’ve scored one, but we kept going and got it in the end, so that’s good.

“We had some chances before that, as well in the second half, but it was good that we scored the first one, that was important and we kept going, so it was good to kill the game off after that.”

After securing a permanent move to the Sky Blues in the summer, the Swede has taken the league by storm, netting seven times in nine league games and insists he is eager to keep helping his team.

“I’m focused on doing the best I can, helping the team the way I can, and playing to my strengths.

“I try to play as good as I can and hope that I can produce goals, but I don’t think about that too much and try to perform well on the game in hand.

“I think I have to think like I’m going to score, you have to want it, I think you have to have that mindset.”

The striker also insists that the fans have played a major role in the Sky Blues success so far this season, as well as looking ahead to the upcoming fixtures.

“The fans help us a lot with their support and we just enjoy being back here and yeah it’s been a good start.

“It was a really good atmosphere tonight and the fans were amazing, so we really enjoyed it.

“We have had a good start, but there’s a lot of games left, so we can’t just be happy with what we’ve done, we need to keep going and focus on the next game.

“We’ve got two tough games before the international break, so we will focus on Luton now and prepare the best we can.”
