Fulham skipper Hughes impressed by Omozusi

Fulham captain Aaron Hughes is full of praise for rookie defender Elliot Omozusi.

The Northern Ireland defender told fulhamfc.com: "I think it's important to talk between you as a team throughout the match. So like with any other player I will speak to him but I also expect him to say stuff to me. He gets on with his game but I want him to turn to me and tell me to do something if I'm not, just as I would do with him.

"I've been so impressed with him, he's come in as a young lad but he never looks flustered, he just gets on with it. He's learning all the time and I think he can only go on and get better.

"The games he's played in he's done remarkably well, no one has shown him up and to go somewhere like Old Trafford and look as comfortable as he did is impressive, he looked like an established player not like someone with only a few games under his belt."
