Pajitim Kasami, who moved to Craven Cottage for £3.5m from Palermo in the summer of 2011, wrote his name into Fulham folklore when he scored a sensational goal to equalise at Crystal Palace in October 2013. The Swiss international chested down a long ball from Sasha RIether and lashed a sensational volley over the goalkeeper into the net on the run off his weaker foot. The attacking midfielder had struggled to establish himself at Fulham after blazing a penalty he wasn’t supposed to take over the bar during a League Cup tie at Stamford Bridge, but remained a favourite of manager Martin Jol.
Kasami found it difficult to remain fit and in form and his eye-catching contributions, which included heading the winner at Sunderland on the opening day of the 2013-14 campaign, were fleeting. He scored three goals in 56 appearances – failing to feature with any regularity once Jol was sacked in December 2013 – and left Fulham for Olympiacos following the club’s relegation.
