Roos will spend the season on loan away from his parent club and he’s adopted a mentality to the move, which Derby boss Paul Clement can’t help but be impressed by.
He certainly doesn’t see his long term future away from Derby and it’s encouraging that he’s looking to give his boss a problem this time next year, hopefully, when the Rams are preparing for a season in the Premier League.
“My main aim this year is to get games on my CV and come back to Derby next year having proved myself at this level.”
Competitive nature of the Championship
It’s important that the player doesn’t get too far ahead of himself in terms of how he’s thinking about his future.
The Championship is a very competitive league, with some very physical forwards who will be looking to pile the pressure onto Rotherham, who struggled at times defensively last season.
It may also be the case that Derby are a Premier League team the season after next, which completely changes the way Clement can think about improving his squad next summer.
Roos could have a blinding season with Rotherham, but it will be difficult for him to present himself as the best choice for number one if the Rams are in the Premier League, because their number one for the imminent season, is likely to have had a decent campaign himself for that to happen.
