Former Super Eagles striker, Yakubu Aiyegbeni, has said that he sees “great qualities” in his Coventry City team-mates and that is why he joined the League One club.

Aiyegbeni has signed a deal with the Sky Blues until the end of the season.

Coventry are currently bottom of the third-tier division, but the 34-year-old is confident they can beat the drop.

“Things are quite tough for Coventry City at the moment and I understand what is expected of me,” Yakubu told BBC Sport.

“I had the opportunity to train with the players here, I see great qualities and believe things can get better.

“I love scoring goals and helping my team-mates to score, together we can lift the club.”

Yakubu featured for Turkish club Kayserispor.
