INTERVIEW: Jay Dasilva talks fitness, pre-season and opening day

29 July 2023

Jay Dasilva returned to the grass this afternoon, as he got more minutes under his belt at St James Park.

The defender, who had previously missed the last two pre-season fixtures with an injury, started against Exeter in a 2-1 win.

Speaking after the final whistle, Dasilva addressed his fitness and went over why he joined the Sky Blues.



“I’m feeling good and I’m ready to get the ball rolling next week I’m excited and ready to go.

“I missed a few games last week with a little knock but I’ve been catching up on fitness and I think we’ve done enough work before that in the meantime.

“I’m feeling good and raring to go.”


Joining Coventry…

“It was close to happening in January but unfortunately it didn’t work out, so I had to wait a few months.

“I was hoping we could still get the deal done and luckily, we got it over the line, and I was happy.”


Working with Adi Viveash again…

“It was an important factor in me coming here. He’s such a great coach and gets the best out of everyone and I can only speak highly of him and everyone that works with him will say the same.

“Brad and Kasey were there at the same time as me and it was some good times.”


Looking forward to the start of the season…

“I’m really excited it’s been good so far with the additions we’ve brought in.

“We’re stating to gel and the more we play the more things will click together an hopefully we can push on and do one better this year.”


Sky Blue Army…

“The fans are great form what I’ve seen.

“The fans have always been great and they’ve always had a great away support and they’re massive for us and I can feel that already and it will be big for us this season.”


Opening day against Leicester…

“All the boys are up for it. It will be a great occasion and it’s a great way to start the season, we just can’t wait for it now.”
