New, comments


On the official Fulham website fulhamfc.com,  the club announced its first summer signing. Fulham have signed Philippe Senderos to a three year deal. He is a 25 years old centre back and a Swiss International. He will be playing in the World Cup for Switzerland. He played for his former club Arsenal for seven years.

 This Fulhamfc.com announcement also has quotes from Philippe Senderos and Roy Hodgson.

Here are quotes from Philippe Senderos from the Fulham Football Training Ground. Philippe Senderos said:

   ‘I’m delighted to have finalised my transfer to Fulham earlier today and happy that I am joining the Club during the most successful period in its history.

"I will be looking forward to meeting up with my new teammates and of course, Roy Hodgson, a Manager I respect very much, shortly after the World Cup.

"I very much hope that I can contribute over the next few seasons and that the Club goes on to achieve more success."

Below are comments from Roy Hodgson. 

Roy Hodgson stated:

"Philippe is a player that I have admired for a very long time since he captained Switzerland to the UEFA Under-17 Championship in 2002.

"He is a strong defender who has great aerial presence at both ends of the field and has a superb work ethic which is a vital component for any team’s success. I am very much looking forward to working with Philippe next season."

 

 

I also have some other information regarding the signing of Senderos. According to Skysports.com Senderos come to Fulham on a free transfer from Arsenal. His deal with Arsenal had expired and he was not offered new terms.
With all the rumors flying around lately it is good to see some positive news with a summer signing. I wish Philippe Senderos the best of luck with Fulham.
