Fulham skipper Danny Murphy is looking forward to the crucial Europa League clash in Basel but hopes it won’t be the end of his side’s European exploits.
The former Liverpool midfielder, a scorer at St. Jakob-Park in his days with the Anfield club, is expected to return to the starting line-up tomorrow night having been on the bench for the victory over Sunderland and Saturday’s draw at Burnley.
It will be a good game. These are the type of games you want to play, with something big riding on it.
They’ve got a good stadium. I’ve played there with Liverpool and I’ve got good memories of it. I scored but ultimately they put us out of the Champions League.
Murphy reckons this could the biggest game of Fulham’s recent history and older fans might only rank the 1975 FA Cup final as bigger.
It’s going to be interesting because their fans caused a real rocket here. It is probably the biggest individual game we’ve had but, in truth, it’s a no-lose situation for us.
If we win everyone will be ecstatic at the fact that we’ve qualified but if we don’t people will appreciate the fact we’ve done so well to get to this stage.
