Introduction of More Candidates for the First Team

Also Marušinec, Valla, Draškovec, and Zvala are ready to fight for their positions in the main team.

We brought brief profiles of a trio of juniors trying to move to the first team last week. The remaining quartet will be introduced in the following posting. Similarly to the first part of this two-fold series, we are bringing short profiles of the players, their opinions on the transition from junior to senior football, and finally some evaluations of the assistant coach Adrián Guľa.

Peter Valla, left defender (born on March 20, 1990)

He looks like an old sweat in prep games. He dares Zidane-like zigzags, heels, and sudden tricks. He also has a good offensive drive. He grew up in Lakšárska Nová Ves where Stano Velický comes from. We wish Peter well and hope that he wins recognition in the AS jersey similarly to the ex-captain.

Peter Valla: “Already my first impressions in the main team were very pleasant. I like it here. I feel no anxiety yet. I am trying some technical tricks, but I had dared more in the junior team. I have to control myself in the senior team’s games. They are much more aggressive and faster. When I get a chance, I will do my best to make use of it. I am also ready to wait until my chance comes.“

Adrián Guľa: “He appears to be very solid in the left defense. He definitely has a big perspective. Of course, he has to get used to the senior football, but cooperation with him is very good.“

Milan Marušinec, middle defender (born on October 18, 1989)

The fair-haired defender took his first steps in the ‘A’ team already in the last season. He was not able to beat the hard competition of sweepers in the team so he welcomed the opportunity of a visiting contract in Trenčianske Jastrabie.

Milan Marušinec: “We have a new coach and with him a new chance also comes for me. That motivates me a lot. A couple of my teammates from the junior team are here as well. This is another factor that can help.“

Adrián Guľa: “The only problem in his case is that we are quite strong at his post. He has to keep collecting experiences. Nevertheless, we can use him as an alternative. Miňo is also able to play a defensive midfield.“

Marek Zvala, right midfield/universal (born on March 3, 1990, missing in the picture)

He can play anywhere besides the goalkeeper’s position. He belongs to the rare kinds of universals who can play in the midfield as well as in the defense. Marek’s start in the main team was complicated by an unpleasant flu. He had been pausing until the beginning of this week.”

Marek Zvala: “I best feel at the right side, but I have also played in the middle or at the left. It was however much easier in the junior team. It is much faster and more aggressive in the senior’s category. I am not afraid of this challenge though. I will patiently wait for my chance. If it comes, I will try to seize it.“

Adrián Guľa: “He was a bit unfortunate in the prep. He had missed several trainings due to his illness. Therefore we have not been able to evaluate his qualities. He first has to prove his qualities in the training and then he may get a chance in games. I see no problem in this. All of our young players will be developing much faster cooperating with such experienced players as Ševela and Knapp.”

Ľuboš Draškovec, goalkeeper (born on December 19, 1991)

He came quietly, but showed his qualities already in the first model game. His performance was excellent driving his more experienced teammates mad. He only conceded once and his team won clearly 5:1. Another appearance in the senior team’s jersey came in the prep game against Banská Bystrica. In spite of the goal conceded, he showed a bold performance with no signs of anxiety.”

Ľuboš Draškovec: “I feel fine in the first team. I am fully concentrating on games as well as on trainings. In fact, I have no time to deal with whether I stand against juniors or seniors. My cooperation with my more experienced colleagues from the defense has been great so far. We help each other a lot.“

Adrián Guľa: “Evaluation of goalkeepers is not my job, but I like his reflex and the way he is moving on the ground. Also his character seems to be OK. He is a typical stoic. It seems that he does really not care whether he plays for the junior team or against a team from Corgoň League. Also in his case it is all about a chance. If he gets it, he can succeed. He has to work hard though. The door to the main team is open for any young player in Trenčín.“
