Tell me a little bit about Ashley Coffey?
I’m a pretty relaxed guy outside of football and like to have a laugh and a joke. I think it’s important not to take yourself too seriously. When I have time off from work and football I enjoy relaxing, spending time with my girlfriend, seeing friends and a few games of Fifa. Unlike Andre (Bernadini) I’m not a chess guy. I like to switch off from Football and Work in my free time
Born: 01/12/1993 (26)
Why are you in Sweden?
I wanted a change from England, I wasn’t really enjoying my football at the time. I’d always wanted to play abroad at some point during my career. My girlfriend is Swedish so I thought it would be the perfect challenge so see how far I could go in Sweden.
I work at an International English School supporting children with behavioural issues as well as working one to one with children who are also struggling in some subjects. I have been really lucky to have found such a great workplace to work at. It has massively helped me settle into life in Sweden.
I played for Bradford City for 2 years when I was a 13-15. Then I went to a college where playing football was part of the programme which helped me a lot. After that I went to Teesside University in Middlesbrough played for the uni team as well as playing for some non league teams around the north east area. My most recent former team was Huddinge IF where I played half of a season before IFK signed me.
I just want to enjoy my football as much as I can. I’d like to play higher if possible and I still feel that I’m at a good age to still do that. But for the moment I just want to get back playing for IFK when possible and hopefully I can push on this season and put in some good performances.
The best soccer player in the world?
I’ve always been a Ronaldo fan even though Messi is amazing I prefer Ronaldo. His career has been unbelievable the level he has played at for the last 10 years has been amazing.
There’s a few players that I loved Rooney, Viduka and Hasselbaink. But my favourite player to watch in his prime at Chelsea especially was Diego Costa. Even though he played on the edge a lot of the time I thought his overall game as brilliant.
Predict IFK:s position in series?
When we finally get going I think we can shock a lot of people this year. We’ve got some really good players. It’s been a really long pre season which has probably helped us gel as a team more.
I listen to all sorts of Music. I like a lot of British Bands (Oasis, The Beatles and Queen. Then I listen to a lot of Techno music so it really depends on what I’m feeling.
Best holiday place?
My favourite holiday destination would be Ibiza. I’ve been there twice with all my friends and it is just unbelievable. There is nothing that beats it!
Vi tackar Ashley för intervjun, och hoppas på ett antal mål ifrån honom, när ETTAN spelet väl kommer igång.
