Left back Paul Konchesky signed for Fulham during Lawrie Sanchez’s summer upheaval of his squad in July 2007. He made his debut against Arsenal in August 2007 and went on to become a reassuring regular in what had been a problem position for the club. Defensively disciplined but with a yearning to go forward, Konchesky showed his adventurous side by scoring a screamer against his old club at Upton Park in January 2009, which won the BBC’s goal of the month competition.
Konchesky formed a fabulous partnership with Damien Duff down the Fulham left with the pair both scoring in a 2-1 win over Everton, where the Whites came from behind, in September 2010. The England international was a key figure in Fulham’s run to the Europa League final that year, which saw them lose late in extra time to Atletico Madrid, and after 122 appearances for the Whites, he followed Roy Hodgson to Liverpool on transfer deadline day in August 2010 for a reported £4m.
