Rojas coy on Victory future

10 April 2013 07:53

Out-of-contract Melbourne Victory forward Marco Rojas says he will decide his future at the end of the A-League season.

The New Zealand international has starred for Victory in the 2012/13 campaign, scoring 15 goals to help fire Ange Postecoglou's men into the semi-finals – and a date with the Central Coast Mariners at Bluetongue Stadium on Sunday.

But when pushed on whether he would be a Victory man beyond this season, Rojas said he would not be setting a date on a decision regarding his future.

"Nothing's happening at the moment," Rojas said at AAMI Park on Wednesday, in regards to his contract negotiations.

"You can come ask me after the grand final."

Rojas has topped the charts for the most goals from open play this season, with all of his goals coming in such fashion.

The 21-year-old said he does not feel under specific pressure to maintain his performance levels, despite the doubt surrounding his future.

"It's not that hard, it's gone quiet for a while so that's been good," he said.

"And it's not that big a deal, it's not an individual sport so I've got to put that behind me and focus on the team. If I think about it too much, it'll affect my performance and I don't want that to happen."

After battling past Perth Glory 2-1 in extra-time in their first final at Etihad Stadium on Friday, Rojas said he and his team-mates had felt the brunt of the increased workload over the weekend.

But following Wednesday's training session at AAMI Park, Rojas said he was feeling fresh again to tackle the Mariners.

"We've had a pretty light start to the week, I think it's definitely helping everyone recover. I definitely feel better for it," he said.

"Because we've lightened the load, we feel a lot better. After the game it was pretty tough, and after the past few days, I've still been pulling up pretty sore, but today I feel a lot better."
