Fulham boss Meulensteen won't ignore academy talent

Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen has big plans for their talented Academy squad.

Meulensteen included 19-year-old midfielder Lasse Vigen Christensen in the squad for the win against Aston Villa earlier this month, and the Dutchman is prepared to give more of Fulham's talented crop of youngsters an opportunity in the senior set-up.

He told the Fulham Chronicle: "Everybody involved in the academy at Fulham deserves enormous credit because they do things right.

"The key now is making sure you create a pathway for those players to come through. I have been in that scenario for many years and the future looks bright in that respect.

"It is great to see the Under-18s and the Under-21s performing well and we need to start drip feeding these players into the squad."
