Fulham boss Martin Jol is delighted with the progress of Swedish winger Alex Kacaniklic.

The former Liverpool junior has been outstanding for the Cottagers this term.

Jol told the Fulham Chronicle: "I feel it is the same for all these youngsters, they need a chance.

"They are talents and of course you can be a talent when you're 25 if you don't get a chance, but I gave him this chance and I gave Kerim Frei the chance.

"We've got Kieran Richardson in that position and he created three chances and two goals for us when he came on against Southampton.

"There is good rivalry between them so we will have to wait to see who is playing tomorrow.

"Even if 'Kaca' is not in the team, he is doing well. I will help him to be a very good player but I know there is some interest in 'Kaca' - it is not very serious otherwise I would tell you."
