Sascha Riether highlighted his defensive and attacking pedigree last weekend with a first-class performance during Fulham’s 3-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion.
The defender’s crosses from the right flank hit double figures at Craven Cottage on Saturday and Riether was delighted with a fine overall performance by the Team.
“It was a good win but we had to win after losing the two previous games,” said Riether. “It was a very good performance on Saturday with three goals.
“As a defender it’s always important to keep a clean sheet and when you’ve got strikers like we have you’re always going to score goals. It was a very good day for Fulham Football Club.”
Fulham appear to have once again secured another transfer coup in Riether and the German international is clearly enjoying life in SW6 since his summer loan move from FC Cologne.
“It’s been unbelievable so far and a lot of fun to play here,” said Riether. “The Team has made it easy for me to settle in and they’ve helped me a lot. It’s a big honour for me and we’ve had a good start so hopefully now we can keep performing like we did on Saturday.”
Whilst there were several man-of-the-match performances for Fulham last weekend, the headlines of course went to two-goal hero Dimitar Berbatov, whose rich talents are admired and respected by all at Craven Cottage.
“We know what a wonderful striker he is and on Saturday we saw he can score goals for Fulham and hopefully there will be many more,” said Riether. “He’s got a touch of class and he’s going to be very important for us.”
