Mitch Langerak says he is not about to lose patience with his role at Borussia Dortmund.
The 24-year old is currently resigned to the bench at the German Bundesliga champions with Roman Weidenfeller the clubs number one but he is not too perturbed about playing understudy as long as he is at a big club.
"These are the games you want to be involved with and you just have to be ready," said Langerak ahead of Dortmund’s Champions League clash with Real Madrid on Wednesday.
"The adrenalin gets you through those big games, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous, but that is normal.
"You go out there and face situations, you don't have time to think.
“The more you get out there, the easier it gets.”
He added: "But I am in a good position here, I'm not playing that often, but I'm learning every day.
"That's football. If you look around all the biggest clubs in the world, there is always someone pushing to get into the first team.
"That's what I am doing and hopefully that will happen so I can play regularly.
"There's a great goalkeeper here, so it's all about biding my time and doing my apprenticeship. When the time comes, I'll get my chance.
"You can't replace being at a big European club and seeing how football is at this level."
