John Pantsil is looking forward to returning to Craven Cottage with Ghana as his national side prepare to take on Brazil in Monday night’s friendly.

The Ghana full-back, who played 91 games for Fulham between 2008 and 2011, joined Leicester City on a free transfer but is excited about playing at the Cottage, where he was a real fans favourite, again. He told Fulham’s official website:

It’s nice to be here and it’s always good to be back among friends. I am looking forward to this game and enjoying the Craven Cottage atmosphere.

I had a great time here with my teammates and the fans. Three years is a long time, but in the modern game, it is rare to play for just one team or remain with a club for a very long period. I still have strong emotions for Fulham and always want them to succeed.

I have had plenty of emails and text messages from many friends at Fulham who cannot wait for the game and to see me playing here once again. I am so excited and cannot wait for kick-off as Ghana is going to have many honorary fans at the game to cheer us on against Brazil.

Pantsil has made just three appearances for the Foxes in the Championship so far but is expected to start against the Brazilians at right back on Monday.
