Sascha Riether: Fulham want to keep the on-loan full-back

Sascha Riether: Fulham want to keep the on-loan full-back

Riether joined Fulham on a season-long loan from Cologne last summer and he has made 30 appearances in all competitions, missing just one game in the Premier League.

Fulham have first option to retain the 29-year-old and Jol reiterated his intention to ensure Riether is part of his squad next season.

"Sascha is a fans' favourite," Jol told Deutsche Pressagentur. "He is the right-back in my starting XI.

"He runs, he works and he has a good view of situations. I am glad to have him at this club.

"We possess an option [to buy him]. If we are to exercise it, he will have to remain at our club. But if he is not happy, we would have to talk then.

"But I really don't think that this is the case with him. I think he feels fine being a first-team regular with us."

Illness forced Riether to miss the 0-0 draw at Norwich City earlier this month when he was replaced by January signing Stanislav Manolev, but he returned to the team for last Saturday's 1-0 win over Stoke City.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
