Amadou Bakayoko Sends Message To Coventry City

Amadou Bakayoko has penned an emotional farewell message to Coventry City after three-seasons with the club.

The former Southport and Worcester player joined the Sky Blues in the summer of 2018 from Walsall but has failed to score in 17 games in all competitions in recently concluded term.

The Sierra Leone-born attacker, in a long post on social media, has appreciated the club and confirmed that he is now officially a free-agent.

“After three unforgettable years, today I say goodbye to a magnificent club Coventry City,” he posted on Twitter.

“Would like to thank everyone from staff, players and most importantly the #SBA supporters who have welcomed me in and created unforgettable memories with, starting from Charlton away to a classic Sunderland away performance, topped off with promotion to (the) Championship.

“Would only have wished to leave with a full stadium chanting 20 goals for the last time.

“Been through the good and bad but still stood by my side, which I will always appreciate.

“It’s been a real honour to wear the Coventry shirt. I wish the club plenty more success (in) the coming years.”

Bakayoko started his career at Walsall and earned a move to Coventry two years ago after scoring a combined 18 goals in two seasons for the Saddlers in League One.

He helped Mark Robins’ side gain promotion to the Championship in the 2019/2020 campaign after making 35 appearances, scoring seven goals.

He continued to fight for a place in the starting eleven, chipping in with important goals along the way. However, the step up seemingly proved too deep for him in the closing stages of the championship.

Bakayoko got his first call-up for Sierra Leone national team in 2018 but he turned down the chance to play for  Leone Stars in an 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifiers againist Ethiopia for an opportunity to play for the Holland national team.
