Bangura: ‘Coventry move is biggest chance of my career’

Sierra Leonean midfielder, Alhassan Bangura, who recently signed a short-term deal with English League One side Coventry City, has said the opportunity to sign for the club was the biggest chance of his career.

Bangura has been out of contract since he departed Forest Green Rovers last summer, and the combative midfielder was excited at earning a short-term deal to impress.

“I’m very delighted to get a contract because I haven’t been in the league for a while,” he said with a beaming smile. “I have got the opportunity through Steven Pressley and Dave Hockaday and now the new manager and staff. They have helped me get fit and ready and I am not too far away now and just want to get into the first team and repay the faith they have shown in me.”

The midfielder, who had had a taste of Premier League football, believes the chance given to him is much bigger.

“I don’t see this as a second chance but the biggest chance of my career,” he told the Coventry Telegraph. “I have been out for so long, maybe two or three years, so I see it as huge opportunity to come back into the league. I am going to try to take that with my two hands and make sure I hold it tight.”
