Slovakian stopper eager to impress and vye for number 1 spot.Marko Marosi has said that his recent first team experience should stand him in good stead for the future.
Marosi had a bittersweet weekend having made his Rovers debut as a substitute in Saturday’s 3-0 defeat to Walsall before being called up once again to Slovakia’s U21 squad.
“It was difficult. Unfortunately Jed [Steer] got injured early on and it certainly wasn't a dream debut but it was a great experience for me and I think I learned a lot from it. I was hoping to help the team out but I couldn't do much unfortunately,” he said of his first competitive action.
“It feels great to be called up regularly, its great for my career and a good experience and I just want to do well.
“We’re playing Italy under 21's in the play offs and we have two games, one home and one away so if we win those it'll be great for the country and the lads with our careers. If we get to the Euros it will give us a great boost.
Marosi signed for Rovers in the summer on a two year deal and has been in the country for quite some time, where he was developed by Wigan Athletic.
“It helps been at Doncaster, training regularly with the first team and I’m part of a great squad and that provides me the experience to take with me to the national side.
“It doesn’t feel strange, it's my second home but it feels great to go back to my home country and seeing the things that I miss out on and catch up on such as my family who will come out and support me.
“Every time I go back and I speak Slovakian I mix a bit of English in there and the lads end up laughing but I just want to play football because I know if and when I play next, I will be trying my hardest.”
