Labyad: Attacking Style

Monday 1 February 2016 18:30

Zakaria Labyad is hoping to entertain the Fulham fans after signing for the Club on loan for the remainder of the season.

The attacking midfielder is comfortable on the wing or in the number 10 role, and he’s keen to contribute to Slaviša Jokanović’s offensive style of play.

“Actually that’s a reason why they brought me to Fulham, because I like to play football,” he told the official website. “Especially combination football, that’s the main thing, not just kick and rush!

“I’m an attacking player, I’m a creative player, I can score goals, and I’m a team player. Yes, I hope the fans will like my football style, but of course the most important thing is to win games.”

With experience of playing in the top Portuguese and Dutch leagues under his belt, the 22-year-old is now relishing the opportunity to test himself in England.

“I’m looking forward to the challenge of playing in the UK,” he said. “I’m very happy to play for Fulham. I’m on loan now and I’m very happy to be here.

“I’ve followed this club since Martin Jol was coach and since then I’ve always been following the football here in the UK. It’s always been a dream to play in the UK.”

And Labyad is keen to get his new team as far up the Sky Bet Championship standings as possible, stating: “They have good football players in Fulham and we should be higher in the table than we are now.”
