Rovers official website caught up with Spanish midfielder Marc De Val and spoke about how he has settled at the club and how far off a return he is.
How are you settling in Doncaster?
It is very easy to get used to living in Doncaster because the people and the club treat me very well. I am happy here because it is such a friendly part of England, so it has made it easy for me to settle down and feel at home.
What do you like about the town?
I like it here in Doncaster because it has great facilities for leisure and entertainment. Although it is different to Spain, I really like it here and it is such a great town to live in. There is much to do in the day and at night with great places nearby as well.
How have your team mates been with you?
My team mates have been amazing and welcoming. We have great camaraderie in the squad, which has helped me settle into a new club away from Spain. Everybody pulls together to be as one and be united in their aim to be successful for Doncaster Rovers.
How is your rehabilitation progressing?
It is going well and I am hoping to be back training soon. It has been due to the professional work of Alex and Ben that I am so close to getting back into action. I feel fit again now and I have worked hard to be at this stage of my rehabilitation. It has been hard, as it’s as if I have had to go through another pre-season to build my fitness up.
How frustrating has it been to get injured at a new club?
This is the first time I have had a long term injury and it is frustrating, because I want to show everyone what I can do on the pitch. I have got my head down and worked hard and cannot wait to get back to playing football. I know I will have to wait my turn once I am fit, as we are playing well.
What are your thoughts on how we are playing?
The lads are working hard and playing well. I don’t think it will be long before they start to get more good results. Everybody works for one another and will continue to play good football.
