Dulca targets more U23 opportunities
Marco Dulca aims to capitalise on every opportunity he gets with Swansea City Under-23s this season.
The 18-year-old Romanian midfielder made his first start of the season for the development side during Saturday’s 2-1 defeat against Manchester United in the Premier League International Cup – playing 83 minutes at Leigh Sports Village.
Despite the result, Dulca admits he has taken a lot of belief from playing more minutes with the U23s and is aiming to earn more chances to impress at a higher level.
“I’m very pleased with my performance and to have made my first start, so I will take a lot confidence going forward,” Dulca said.
“Obviously, I want more chances this season. I am still only 18, so when my chances do come I have to make sure I take them and put in 100 percent.
“Saturday was an important game for us and I think the boys put a shift in.
“We played very well in the first half, but when United scored our performance levels dropped a little bit and they got the second goal which killed the game.”
