Hangeland happy at return coincides with Fulham win

Fulham skipper Brede Hangeland was delighted to return from suspension and lead the side to a 2-1 victory over Newcastle United. The 31-year-old centre-back missed three matches following a red card in the defeat by Sunderland last month.

He told BBC London 94.9/: "It's been very frustrating to not be able to play the last few weeks. To come back and be part of a win was a great feeling.

"I've always played all the games at every club I've been at."

The Norway international continued: "I absolutely hate watching [from the sidelines]. It's terrible.

"You just want to be on the pitch and able to help out as best you can.

"Sunderland was a nightmare game where everything went wrong. I felt responsible to a certain extent for that.

"I want to put that bad couple of weeks behind me, look ahead and hopefully play the rest of the games this season."
