Having been brought to the club in the wake of Marc McNulty’s departure, most were pessimistic about Amadou Bakayoko given his poor goalscoring record. Barely getting a look-in during the opening months of his first season and making little impression when he did play (a brace away at Charlton aside) Bakayoko looked like fulfilling the minimal expectations of him upon arrival. However, Bakayoko has since carved out a niche for himself in the side spearheading an energetic and pacey forward line.
Although he has a good habit of making things happen whenever he plays, he can charitably be described as a raw talent who still needs to develop the technical and tactical side of his game before he can be trusted as a convincing player in a Coventry City shirt. Having earned a regular spot in his first season at the club, the challenge for him now is to hold onto it and become a more consistent and decisive player.
