Why Coventry…

“Coventry really showed big interest in me. They were saying nice things and the coach as well, they were pushing to get me in the team and when you find out a team really want you, it’s hard to say no.

“The style of playing as well really suits me and its written all over my body and it was an easy choice to make.”


First impressions…

“Last year, they missed out on play-offs on penalties and seeing that and knowing that shows the ambition of the club and I would like to participate in that.”


Meeting Mark Robins…

“He said it’s a nice and warm club, and I will be developing here, and I can’t wait to play for the crowd and for the team.”


What fans can expect…

“I’m a pacy defender. I like to get up and down for 90 minutes and every game I play I will give everything I have and play with my heart.”
