One of the bright spots from a disappointing night in Split was Pajtim Kasami’s promising cameo as a second-half substitute.
The Swiss midfielder made an eye-catching run and, despite not seeing too much of the ball during his brief appearance, is keen to build on his Fulham debut.
I’m happy to have played in my first game for Fulham. I want to help the team and now I’m just looking forward to my next game. They were ok as an opposition, but I think we can do better than that and hopefully we will see that in the second game next week.
Kasami also revealed how pleased he is to be working under new Fulham manager Martin Jol.
I’m really pleased to be working for him because he is a fantastic coach. I’ve been a Fulham player little more than three days, but the whole squad are really happy – there’s a good spirit, which has made it easier for me. So I’m working hard in training now to make sure I reach my top level for Fulham.
It’s great to come back to England, but like I say, this is only my third day so I’m looking forward to working hard, improving and helping the team achieve success. I’m an attacking midfielder so I hope I can score goals and make many assists for the Club, bringing all my qualities to the team to help Fulham win matches.
