Rojas working hard to adapt


Social distancing and staying home is not only helping save lives, it is also providing us with time for reflection.

What am I grateful for?

What am I passionate about?

For Marco Rojas the answer to the last question is simple.

“Playing in front of our amazing members, our fans and just the feeling that you get on game day,” Rojas said.

“I understand it’s necessary and it’s important to stay home, and isolate ourselves as much as possible to stop the spread of the virus.

“Hopefully we’ll be back soon and be doing those things that we love doing.”

In the meantime, Rojas is calling on Victory members and fans to keep sharing their favourite photos, videos and memories of the club on social media using #OurVictory.

The 28-year-old has provided Victory supporters with so many magical moments during his time in the navy blue.

And like all driven players, he is adapting to the conditions and working hard on his extensive bag of tricks.

“I’ve managed to keep fit courtesy of a stationary bike and fitness programs sent to me by the club, so they have been keeping me on my toes.

“There’s going to be a lot more running as part of our individual training programs over the coming weeks.

“And the fact that the season may still return, that means we have to continue to work, to make sure we’re ready should that happen.”

Football Federation Australia is set to reassess the postponement of the A-League season on April 22.

As for Rojas’ answer to the first question….

“My family and friends. It has really helped me appreciate the support that I have.”
