Marcel Gecov says he is enjoying his time at Fulham but is hoping to feature more regularly in Martin Jol’s first team during 2012.
The Czech midfielder has made four appearances for the club since signing from Slovan Liberec for around £750,000 in the summer. The 23 year-old enjoyed an impressive debut at Chelsea in the League Cup in September but has had to wait for more first-team opportunities. He made his league debut for the Whites as a late substitute in the 1-0 win over Liverpool earlier this month.
I’ve enjoyed my time at Fulham so far but it’s been a bit difficult for me because I haven’t played too much, but I expected that at the start of my career at the club. That’s football and nobody likes it when they’re not playing but I have to be patient and wait for my chance to come.
The first half of the season has gone so quickly and it’s always difficult at the start when everything is new but now I’m really enjoying it. Hopefully there will be more opportunities for me in the New Year and during the second half of the season.
I speak with the Manager and he tells me what he wants from me. Now I need to show him in training that he can trust me on the pitch. There are a lot of experienced players ahead of me but that’s also good for me because I can learn a lot from them in training.
I’m sure we will move higher up the League over the next few months because we’re a good team with a lot of good players and experience.
