Marcello Trotta happy with decision to join Fulham

Italian whizkid Marcello Trotta is delighted with his decision to move to Fulham.

Having previously spent time at hometown club Napoli and Manchester City, Trotta has made significant progress at Fulham, scoring 30 times for the U18s last term; goals which did much to help the team reach the Quarter-Final of the FA Youth Cup. His form has also been rewarded with Italy U19 recognition.

"I think I have definitely improved during my time at Fulham," he told fulhamfc.com. "Last season was very pleasing for me, and I am really happy with the progress that I have made. The decision to leave Italy was a difficult one - but now I am seeing the benefits.

"English football has toughened me up - it has taught me things I would never have learned back in Italy. Don't get me wrong, I learned so much at Napoli, a club with a brilliant reputation for youth football, I just feel that I have more to offer now.

"I believe that I am more of a complete player. I say that I got my technique from Italy and my speed and power from my time in England. I would always encourage players to sample different cultures and environments. It would be easy to stay in the comfort of familiar surroundings, but there is so much to learn out in the world."
