Elsad Zverotic: Joined Fulham on transfer deadline day

The 26-year-old utility player joined the Cottagers from Swiss club Young Boys of Berne and he could make his Fulham debut at home to West Brom on Saturday.

Jol said: "He is included in the squad, you know him because he played against England and he was man of the match in that game.

"We were quite happy to get him on very good terms and I'm quite happy to have a utility player.

"We followed him over the last two years, he can fill in for Sascha Riether or even play. He is always in the (Montenegro) line-up.

"He can play in midfield, in front of the defence and he was a left-back - I needed a player who could fill in several positions."

As for the match against bottom-of-the-table Baggies, he added: "I see it as an almost must-win game.

"It is for them as well. If we win then we will be fine, if not there are teams around us and it's important to get out of the bottom."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
