Cotterill Aims To Repay City

David Cotterill says he is hoping to repay the club that gave him his break in football.

The 29-year-old Birmingham City winger has returned to Ashton Gate on loan for the rest of the season, more than ten years after leaving BS3.

Cardiff-born Cotterill was a product of the club’s Academy, making his debut in 2004 before switching to Wigan Athletic in a £2m deal two years later.

Speaking exclusively to Bristol City Player HD, Cotterill said: “I’m very grateful for what this club did for me all those years ago and I always thought I could come back here one day.

“I made my breakthrough here and hopefully I can repay them by keeping the team in the division.”

While Cotterill was able to reacquaint himself with a number of familiar faces, the stadium itself has certainly changed.

“I know the club well from my time many years ago,” he added.

“I know a lot of the lads so it should be easy to settle in. The place has changed a lot but the club is taking a step in the right direction.

“The first aim is to keep the club in the division and in the future we want to be higher up the league, where it should be really.”

Cotterill and fellow deadline day recruit Matty Taylor could make their debuts against Rotherham United this Saturday. Secure your seat for the game by calling 0117 963 0600 or book online here.
