Albert looks to play 'proper' football

New loan signing Albert Rusnak is looking forward to playing 'proper' football with Latics.

The 19-year-old midfield man admits life in Sky Bet League 1 will be a different ball game to playing for Manchester City's under-21's in the Elite Development Squad.

Rusnak, who is no stranger to Boundary Park having played at the ground several times for City, said: "I am excited to have the chance to play in front of a crowd and feature in proper games.

"Hopefully I will get the opportunity to play and it is one I want to take and gain experience of playing League football."

Rusnak was aware Latics' manager Lee Johnson watched him on Bank Holiday Monday when he scored twice for City under-21's in a 3-0 victory against Everton.

And he says he jumped at the chance of the loan move which runs to January 5th.

Rusnak, whose father was a former player and Slovakian under-21 international, continued: "I discussed the loan with my dad and he agreed it is a good step for my career.

"The good thing about having had a dad who has been a footballer is that he can advise you about football, both the good and bad things."

Rusnak signed for City at the age of 13 when his whole family relocated to Manchester to support him. They have since moved back to Slovakia.

He came through the Academy to become a professional and feature regularly in the EDS side.

Rusnak made his debut for the first team in the end-of-season tour game in St Louis, America against Chelsea.
