Marko Marosi is “loving” life at the Sky Blues as he prepares to face former club Doncaster Rovers on Saturday afternoon.
The goalkeeper arrived at City in the Summer, having helped Doncaster reach the League One play-off semi-finals last season.
Marosi has enjoyed a fine start to life in a City shirt and credits his teammates for helping him to settle in so quickly.
Marosi said: “I’m loving it, the lads are fantastic! From day one it’s been unbelievable, we all get along really well, and it’s been fantastic so far.
“We look after one another and encourage each other all the time. We’re always chatting about games and tactics.
“We want to stay unbeaten and do as well as we can. We keep working hard and keep working hard on the training pitch and just take each game as it comes.”
Despite enjoying a productive season in South Yorkshire last term, Marosi had no doubts about joining the Sky Blues once he was aware of their interest.
The 25-year-old isn’t sure what reception he will receive from the away supporters on Saturday afternoon and is expecting a tough game against his former side.
“I felt like I needed a change, amongst other factors, to progress in my career. This was the best choice for me, coming here, and more importantly, it was the right choice.
“When you hear about interest from a club like this, you just think wow! It’s a giant club and having played against them last season, I saw they were a footballing team and I felt I could progress as a player by coming here.
“I don’t know what reception I’ll get, I’ve not really thought about it. We can expect a tough game but it’s just another game that we want to do well in.”
Working with a completely new defence in front of him hasn’t stopped Marosi from recording an impressive five clean sheets this season.
However, the goalkeeper gives credit to those in front of him, as well as individual praise to Kyle McFadzean, for their solid defensive efforts this season.
“To have kept five clean sheets already is really good. It starts from the striker all the way down to the centre-backs and full-backs, everyone has been unbelievable.
“The communication has come along quite quickly and that’s down to the players we have here and how well we get along. We’ve got unbelievable defenders that are good on and off the ball.
“Kyle brings that experience and calmness that we need, because we’re quite a young team, and he’s a really important player for us.”
He admitted that, whilst supporters may be fearful at times when playing out from the back, the risks taken will ultimately reap rewards.
Marosi also expressed his appreciation to the Sky Blues faithful for the unbelievable noise they have created both home and away this season.
“It might scare the supporters at times, when we play out from the back, but when it comes off, we’re through on goal.
“That’s the whole point of it, to open a team up, and it comes with risks, but we’re comfortable doing it.
“The fans have made some unbelievable noise. We really appreciate it as players and it can drive you on, like it did last week with the last-minute goal.
“It’s like having another player on the field. They’ve been fantastic, home and away.”
Another new recruit at the club in the Summer was Head of Goalkeeping Aled Williams who Marosi believes is helping him to improve as a player.
“He’s really good. His sessions are good and match-related and he’s always on top of us and pushing us hard to improve.
“We do a lot of analysis with him, looking at both positives and things to improve on which is important, there’s always things to improve on.”
