We are pleased to welcome Clint Dempsey back to Craven Cottage for this Saturday’s meeting with Watford.
The American – our greatest ever Premier League goal scorer – recently announced his retirement and will be back in SW6 as a guest of the Club.
We caught up with Clint for an exclusive interview in the official matchday programme, and he’s clearly looking forward to his return to a ground where he enjoyed so much success across a five-and-a-half year period.
“I can’t wait to see Fulham playing back in a league they belong in and taking a little trip down memory lane,” Dempsey said. “It will be great to see the fans.
“The Cottage was one of my favourite stadiums to play in. It was such an intimate atmosphere and I’ve just got so many great memories of playing there.
“The fans were a big part of helping create those memories. I gave all I could for Fulham so to be able to come back and sit in the stands as a supporter is going to be a great experience.”
Clint will be presented to the crowd on the pitch at half-time, so make sure you’re there to give him a warm reception.
Tickets are still available for supporters with a booking history to buy, and can be purchased online, by phone on 0203 871 0810 (9am-5pm) or in person from the Fulham Ticket Office.
