Former FC Twente star Bryan Ruiz is excited kicking off his career with Fulham this weekend.

The 26-year-old knows the Craven Cottage outfit spent big landing his signature and he has brushed aside concerns his price tag will affect him.

"I know that a lot is expected of me but I'm here to make a difference - I want to do all I can for Fulham," he told the club's official website.

"The club paid a lot of money for me, I know that, but it is a responsibility I am willing to carry. I will react positively and hopefully I can take the chance that I have been given.

"This is an exciting challenge for me, possibly the biggest of my career so far. I have signed for a team that is continuing to grow and one that offers so many possibilities.

"There were a number of things that attracted me to Fulham. Of course, there was the chance to play in the Premier League and for a manager that I have a lot of respect for. I know the way he [Martin Jol] works and I'm confident that I can do all that he wants me to.

"There were other clubs that showed an interest but already I know that I made the right decision. This is a very personal club and from the moment I spoke with them I felt wanted - and that is important."
