Bryan Ruiz determined to meet Fulham fans' expectations

Fulham attacker Bryan Ruiz is determined to meet fans' expectations.

Ruiz is determined to fill the flair void left by Mousa Dembele and Clint Dempsey's departures for Tottenham.

"I don't think Fulham fans have seen the best of me yet," said Ruiz to Fultime. "Last season I found it hard at times, and there were a couple of injuries too that didn't help. Of course, it could have gone better, but I did a few things to show people what I have, and for sure, this season I'll do my best for the fans.

"Mousa and Clint have both left. They were two players that could do many things on the football pitch. But now we don't have them, and as a result, I do feel a bit more responsibility on my shoulders.

"But I've had pressure before when I was at Twente and it's the same for the national team - so I don't mind that kind of pressure. I know that I can make a difference."
