Marcel Gecov revelled in his Fulham debut at Stamford Bridge and has told a Czech media agency that he is desperate to make more appearances for the club.
The 23 year-old had to wait until last week’s Carling Cup tie to play his first game for Fulham following a switch switch from Slovan Liberec. Gecov greatly enjoyed the experience and hopes to get more opportunities in the Fulham midfield, although he recognises he may have to wait for his chance.
I must say I have not experienced many nicer moments in my career. The atmosphere and venues must charm everyone. When we were going to take a corner in the 70th minute and our fans were cheering for us I was saying to myself ‘I don’t want this moment to end’.
It is very addictive and I don’t think this (football in England) can ever become ordinary. I would like to be getting more and more chances to play with time but must stay realistic. This squad is packed with quality and a lot of lads are waiting for a chance.
Sure, it was rather a long wait but I wasn’t frustrated by any means. I just focused on giving my best in training and the manager was speaking to me often.
He kept explaining what the situation was and that my chance would come. It’s true I might have grown slightly impatient if I had to wait longer. This way, though, I’m happy to have experienced it.
The former Czech under-21 international was impressive on debut, being replaced late on by Steve Sidwell as Fulham went out on penalties. He remained on the substitutes’ bench during Saturday’s draw at West Brom, but could get a chance to shine in our Europa League group game in Odense on Thursday.
