Krystian Bielik: I am enjoying every single minute

20 September 2022

Krystian Bielik is relishing the challenge whenever he steps across the white line for Blues.

The midfielder, who is both destructive to the opposition and critical to starting Birmingham City’s attacks, played his first 90 minutes of a second loan spell at the Club in Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship draw against Coventry City.

This result saw John Eustace’s side go three games unbeaten, a run that has coincided with the Poland international’s first appearances since he completed a season-long loan move from Derby County earlier in the summer.

Speaking to BluesTV after the meeting against the Sky Blues, Bielik talked passionately about his return to action, the satisfaction it brings him to be involved and gave details on his role for the team.

“I am trying to do my best. Whenever I am on the pitch, I am trying to enjoy it, I am trying to help my teammates, I am trying to play forward. I am trying to get the ball, make things calm and play more football.

“This is my job on the pitch and every time I step out on the pitch, I am trying to be myself. When we don’t have the ball, I am trying to be aggressive, win the second balls, win the tackles to help the team.

“That is my job, I am a footballer, so that is what I do, but as I say, I am enjoying every single minute on the pitch and I can’t wait for other games.”

Coventry’s visit to the Second City was Blues’ tenth league game of the season and marked the end of the first block of fixtures, with there now being a two-week break in the calendar for the first Men’s international break of the campaign.

The pause gives time for staff and players to take stock before the action resumes with back-to-back away games against Sheffield United and Middlesbrough at the start of October.

Whilst for the 24-year-old it is also an opportunity to keep working at Wast Hills Training Ground, ensuring he and his teammates continue to improve as a collective.

“We know it is going to be a busy schedule until the winter break, the World Cup, so personally for me it is a massive time to get fitter, get stronger and that is what I am going to do. Every session and every game give my everything to be fully prepared for what is coming.

“For the whole team and the whole Club, the upcoming games are massive. We know where we can be, I have never seen Birmingham this strong. I don’t know, I didn’t follow that much, but with the names we have now on the teamsheet, I would be scared to play against us.

“We have to show every time on the pitch that we are the better team. The expectations are high and I don’t want to lose, I want to win. I expect everyone to give 100% like we did in the second-half today. I can’t wait for the upcoming games!”
