Chelsea defender Ian Maatsen enjoying Coventry loan

Chelsea defender Ian Maatsen says he's enjoying his loan with Coventry City.

The fullback is impressing with the Sky Blues.

He told the club's website: "It is a good loan, we have started the season well. We have had some ups and downs, but it is the process of developing in my career and this is what I need, a good loan. So far, it is going well.

"Charlton was my first loan so this was more to experience how England play men's football and so that a younger player like me can see the difference in the Championship. There are more games in the Championship, coming quick and fast, and I think against better teams and players it is really good for my development. I am happy to play here.

"It is tough because normally when you played at Under-23s you don't play as many games as I do now. You have to recover well, eat good. It is quite tough, but I feel really fit. All the boys welcomed me very well when I arrived. Every coach, the assistants and the gaffer. The fans are pleased with me."
