Pack Enjoying His Football

Marlon Pack is relishing the opportunity of being a regular starter in the Sky Bet Championship this season.

The midfielder began last year’s double-winning campaign on the bench, but broke into the starting line-up at the end of February.

Pack has been an ever-present in Steve Cotterill’s side this term, only being substituted on three occasions, and is loving his role in the squad.

“I’m not used to playing every game for Bristol City – it’s quite a nice feeling!” he told Bristol City Player HD.

“I’m really enjoying it and so has everyone else even when results weren’t going our way.

“How could I not enjoy playing for this team? Football is a great sport and I’m lucky enough to be doing it as a living, and the way we play makes it even more enjoyable.”

Jonathan Kodjia has been another consistent starter in the City team since joining in the summer.

The Frenchman has scored six goals in 13 leagues matches since joining from Angers SCO in the summer, and Pack is full of praise for how his team-mate has settled into his new surroundings.

“He’s come on massively and hopefully he can continue to do what he’s been doing,” he said.

“It must have been hard for him coming into a new country, and fair play to him. He’s got his head down and worked hard.

“In this current market, it seems good business and it’s up to Jimmy to keep going, score a lot of goals for us and get us climbing up that table. But it’s up to us to help him and keep providing him with opportunities to do that.”

On his English, Pack added: “He’s clever with it. I think he understands what he wants to understand. He has selective hearing at the minute!

“He works really hard on it and it’s helping with his performances on the pitch as well.

“The football language is pretty easy to interpret in any country and we’re lucky we’re pretty much on the same wavelength.”
