Sascha Riether is yet to decide if he wants to remain at Fulham

The 29-year-old German has been on a season-long loan at Craven Cottage from German club Cologne - who play in the second tier of the Bundesliga.

Fulham manager Martin Jol recently indicated he would be keen to keep Riether in west London, and may trigger a clause to make the move permanent for around £1.3m.

Riether also has a say on whether he would like to remain by the Thames, having featured in 29 games for the club this season.

He told German magazine Kicker: "Nothing is decided yet. Fulham can activate a clause, and I also have to agree.

"As things stand now, I will return to Cologne in the summer. But I have to consider and talk to both clubs.

"I wanted to become a starter at Fulham, and I managed to do that. I am proud I have become a fans' favourite.

"But of course I can still do better, and that's what I am trying to do."

He added that the hardest part of playing in England was to learn the language: "It wasn't easy. At first, I got nothing of what our Scottish assistant coach (Billy McKinlay)."

Regarding the clause when the loan deal expires in May, Jol said recently: "We've got an option on him and I think we will take it. He will probably stay here."

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...

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.
