Young striker Michael Uwezu, on the bench in Basel last night and a regular in the Fulham reserve side this season, is keen to earn a new contract with the club.

Signing my first professional contract was a moment that I will never forget and the moment that I had been working towards for a long time. I have to make the most of the opportunity and repay the Club and those that have stood by me by doing well on the pitch.

I have a lot of strikers ahead of me, but it’s clear that the Manager thinks about the younger players, which is great. To be working so closely with him in training is unbelievable and I’ve already learned a lot.
