Szolnoki makes his first division debut

The youngster came on as a second half substitute

Roland Szolnoki came off the bench to make his senior debut in Sunday's home win over Paks. The 19 year old was given his chance by Paulo Sousa in the 4-0 win. The youngster admitted that he was nervous when he came on, but was very pleased that he managed to play his first game in the first division, in a win. 

Szolnoki: "Paulo Sousa came over to me before I came on, and told me not to be nervous and play bravely. I am very happy to have played my first game in the top division. I played for the second team on Saturday morning, which is why I was hoping to get a chance in Sunday's game. In the end I cam on in the 85th minute."
