Fojut a good fit for United

Two years after seeing hsi transfer to Celtic fall through due to a cruciate knee injury sustained while playing for Slask Wroclaw, Jaroslaw Fojut is determined to make a name for himself at Dundee United, writes Euan McArthur.

The Pole says he is thrilled to have signed for Jackie McNamara's men and cannot wait to play in the SPFL having signed a pre-contract with Celtic in January 2012.

"I don't like to talk about it very much. The deal fell through and that was it -nothing more. It's in the past now," said the former Bolton, Slask and Tromso centre-half.

"It's the best thing for me to sign for Dundee United. It was a good lesson for me the six months I was out injured.

"I'm not trying to be funny but as a wise-guy once said 'it's not just about the success you get, it's more about how you rise up after you've fallen down.' It was a good lesson for me and my family.

"I look back at that more from the bright side than the dark side. I don't think I need to show anyone that I can play here in Scotland. I am a self-confident player.

"Right now, I just want to show Dundee United fans and the manager that they can trust me in the team. It's up to myself to do that."
