Fulham midfielder Alex Kacaniklic eyes regular starting berth
Wednesday 15 August 2012
Fulham midfielder Alex Kacaniklic is looking to force his way into
Martin Jol's starting line-up from the beginning of the upcoming season.
The 21-year-old impressed during a loan spell at Watford last year and made his Cottagers debut on his return from Vicarage Road.
Former Sweden Under-21 international Kacaniklic, who moved to Fulham from Liverpool in 2010, wants to use the experience he gained at Watford as he targets a permanent place in Jol's side - starting at home to Norwich on Saturday.
"Last year was a really good six months for me, first the loan deal to Watford and then coming back to Fulham and getting some games here," he told the Fulham Chronicle.
"The loan spell gave me the opportunity to play first-team football. Reserve-team football is one thing, but first-team football is where it counts.
"I really enjoyed myself and am pushing for a place in the team for this year."
