Fulham midfielder Mahamadou Diarra is excited about the new season looming.

Diarra is looking forward to playing a key role for Fulham when the Premier League season begins next month.

He told fulhamfc.com: "The first five games of the season are strong games to play so we are going to have to be ready and learn as much as we can now and put everything in place to make life difficult for our opponents in those first few games. I can't wait for the new campaign to start."
