Greek shotstopper excited about future at the Ricoh May 30, 2007

New Sky Blues signing Dimitrios Konstantopoulos expressed his delight at agreeing a three-year deal with the club and is looking forward to battling it out with Coventry player of the year Andy Marshall for the number one spot.

City beat several other interested parties to land the signature of the Greek shotstopper, out of contract at Hartlepool, and now he is eager to prove himself in the Championship.

The 28-year-old, affectionately known as Dimi by Hartlepool fans, bagged Powerade Player of the Month for December and was also named as the 47th most valuable player in FourFourTwo magazine’s recent poll of the 50 Best Players in the Football League after a consistent season for the Pools where he kept 25 clean sheets.

The former Greece Under-21 international said: “I am really proud of my record last season and I hope I can do the same for Coventry City. Every time you keep a clean sheet, you get a point for the team so it’s then down to the rest of the team to score goals”.
