Biography

Fulham’s Academy welcomed Slovakian goalkeeper Marek Rodák midway through the 2012/13 season, before signing him permanently in July 2013.

The stopper began his career in his homeland with MFK Košice and was selected for the Slovakia Under-16 side during his time there.

Offered a trial with Fulham, he was put straight into the Under-18 setup despite his tender age and impressed, becoming first-choice for the remainder of the season and even elevating himself to become the goalkeeper for Fulham's successful Dallas Cup campaign with the Under-19s.

He was a vital part of the Under-18 side who claimed their second successive Barclays Premier League title and signed a scholarship deal in July 2013 to keep him in SW6.
