Fulham midfielder Simon Davies will hang up his boots at the end of his new Fulham contract in 2013.

But the winger insists he can go out on a high by scoring again in another Europa League final for the Whites.

Davies was the only man on the mark during that famous May night in Hamburg when Fulham lost 2-1 to Athletico Madrid – but reckons lightning can strike twice at Craven Cottage.

However, it won’t surprise the 30-year-old if he is reduced to a bit part over the next two campaigns – although the ex-Peterborough player has no plans to return to the lower leagues just to keep going.

He said: “I’m pretty realistic about the next two seasons – particularly in the position I play. I reckon I’ll get used more sparingly.

“I’ve been lucky to play in the Premier League for most of my career – and I don’t think I’m one to go down the leagues. I imagine it would be frustrating.”
