Fulham signing Riether confident settling quickly in London

Fulham signing Sascha Riether is confident he'll settle quickly in London.

Riether has joined the Cottagers from FC Cologne.

He met his new team-mates for the first time when the Fulham squad returned for pre-season training on a drizzly Monday at Motspur Park.

"I'm very happy to be here," he told fulhamfc.com. "It's always a great experience to change club and to change to a new country. In Germany they say the Premier League is the best league in the world and for me it is a great honour to be at a big Club with a big tradition like Fulham. I hope I can help Fulham progress in the right direction.

"At first, I have to get to know the players, the Club, the crowd and the fans. We want to be successful, I won't say which place we will reach in the league but we will see how we start and I hope we have a good season."

He continued: "It's a big step for me as I have always played in Germany. I learned English in school but I have to learn more.

"I have been here for a few days and it has almost always been raining! I hope the summer comes soon. But it's quite good for pre-season as it's not too hot."
