INTERVIEW: Victor Torp on his debut, first goal and FA Cup reaction

The midfielder scored on his City debut...

26 January 2024

Victor Torp marked his debut for Coventry City with a stunning strike against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

The midfielder unleashed an unstoppable effort from distance, to fire City in front just before the break.

The Sky Blues were pegged back late on, to set up a replay between the two sides at The Coventry Building Society Arena.

Speaking after the final whistle, Torp looked back at his first goal and his first outing for the Sky Blues.

On the goal…

"It was great strike and a great goal and I enjoyed playing my first game.

“I had a good feeling when I hit the ball you know it's one of those where you feel you hit it right and then it went in and there was a great feeling and to score on my debut that's the dream,

“I like hitting the ball and having shots from distance and it's one of those days where I hit it right.

 

His competitive debut…

It's my first game in I think one and a half months and yeah, it's nice being playing games again. I enjoyed playing the game today of course the pitch was difficult, but I enjoyed playing again.

Yeah, it's bumpy and it's not easy to play our type of football but I think we had some good attacks and created some decent chances, but yeah, it's not easy to play on this pitch.

“I've been looking forward to this. I haven't played in a long time, so obviously, you want to get your debut as fast as possible, and it was nice to get it today.

 

The away fans…

They're amazing. I was here last Saturday also, the same stadium, the away fans is amazing and the support we get is unreal.

“So amazing, amazing, fans.

 

On a change of system…

We're still playing with three in the midfield so for me the roll was the same.

"We played a different system. For me, it's now just getting into the relationships with my teammates and getting to know them better and they're getting to know me, so for me that's the most important part and things to get those relations. It's so important in football.

 

His first experience of the FA Cup

“Yeah, I'm from Denmark and we know the FA Cup over there and we know it's a cup with a lot of history.

“I've watched some finals and some games so for me to play in the FA Cup it's a big achievement for me and I'm happy to have done that.

 

Replay…

“Obviously we want to go through today and we had the lead late in the game but now it's a rematch and then we will try to go through there.
