Corey Addai, Coventry City

The Ghanaian goalkeeping prodigy Corey Addai moved to Coventry City from Arsenal in July 15 at just 18 years old after the Sky Blues beat a host of rival clubs to sign the promising 6ft 4ins tall keeper. He initially signed a 2 year apprenticeship stating the influence of Goalkeeping Coach Steve Ogrizovic as his main decision to put pen to paper.

Since then Addai has been been involved with the 1st team on several occasions featuring in cup games.

Talking in May 17 the manager of Coventry City heaped praise on the young keeper for both his professionalism and enthusiasm and although he has not yet featured in a league game this season he has been done well during the cup games and is now a regular in the Coventry City team as he continues to improve and gain experience.

He reveals that he harnessed his goalkeeping skills after watching the agility of his father who played in the English non-league. “My dad was also a goalkeeper so this helped me as I watched him from such as young age when he was playing in the non-league system here in England I picked up most of my skills from him and that’s what helped me sign for Arsenal at 10 years old.”
