Fulham’s Andranik Teymourian has recovered from a knee injury and has targeted a return before the New Year.

The midfielder had been sidelined since early October after sustaining the injury in a reserve game.

Despite a difficult start to his career at Craven Cottage, the former Bolton player is eager to return to the fold and believes European qualification is a realistic goal.

“I have started my training and will be ready in the next two weeks. I thank my family, especially my wife, who helped me adjust to this hard situation,” he told Mehr News Agency.

“To earn a European spot is not so impossible for Fulham. We have the advantage of good coaches and players.

“Hopefully, Fulham will get more points in the next games to qualify for the continental competitions.”
