Fulham announced on Friday morning that U.S. international Carlos Bocanegra has been released by the west London club.

Bocanegra sat on the sidelines for most of the 2007/2008 season and wasn't favoured by new manager Roy Hodgson.

Bocanegra did however captain Fulham for the first time in a Premier League match in September 2007 against Spurs, and made his 100th Premier League appearance that same month in a match against Wigan Athletic.

Prior to signing for Fulham, Bocanegra played for Major League Soccer team Chicago Fire.
