Luis Binks revealed the opportunity to come back to England and represent Coventry City was a big reason in him joining from Bologna on a season long loan.

The centre-back has agreed to join City for the 2023/24 season, returning to England, having spent the last few years in Canada and Italy.

Now, after putting pen-to-paper, Binks spoke about his aims for the season and meeting Mark Robins for the first time.

 

Thoughts on getting the loan complete…

“I’m really excited. It’s a big Club with a big history and you saw what they did last season and it’s an exciting time to come to Coventry.

“My end it didn’t take long to decide. As soon as I heard of the interest I wanted to come to Coventry.

“What they did last year was great and I think it has everything here to do that again and go one better.”

 

First thoughts…

“I was excited straight away. The league is a great league, especially this year. The manager here is very experienced and it will be great to work alongside him.

“Also, the fans, I’ve seen videos and pictures of the stadium and it looks like an enjoyable place to play.

Moving away from England and now coming back…

“Moving to Canada when I was 18 wasn’t easy, but I wanted to go and play first team football.

“Then I spent the last few years in Italy and that has been great for me to learn that style of football and hopefully it will help me this season.

“I’ve been away for a few years now. I grew up in England and came through the academies here, it was always on my mind to one day come back and I think this is a good fit for me to come back.”

 

Aims during his time here…

“Minutes on the pitch.

“I want to help Coventry do as well as they can and for me, I want to play as well as I can and show everyone how good I can be.”

 

Meeting Mark Robins…

“I spoke with him earlier in the week and he explained the project to me and everything.

“It reassured me that this is the right place for me and again speaking to him and the coaches it’s brilliant and his knowledge of football will be great to learn from.”

What the fans can expect…

“I’m a ball playing defender. I like to keep clean sheets, obviously I’m a defender that’s first and foremost.

“I like to have the ball and I like to lead. Being young, that’s something I want to improve in this league especially with this squad and the experience they have here.”

 

Looking forward to getting started…

“I’m very excited, I wanted to get it done as soon as possible and now it’s finally done I can’t wait to get out here and train and play.”
