Fulham attack Ruiz: I am being double-teamed in games

Fulham attacker Bryan Ruiz admits he's struggling to cope with the extra pressure in Premier League games.

The attacking midfielder, signed in August from Dutch club FC Twente, has yet to score for Martin Jol's side.

Ruiz revealed: "When I played in Holland I used to have an extra second to think.

"That makes a big difference. Here I am placed under greater pressure and get less time to act on the pitch.

"You also get more one-on-one situations in Dutch football. Here you get two players breathing down your neck straight away."
