Hodgson: Hangeland future Fulham captain

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson sees January signing Brede Hangeland as a future club captain.

"It would depend on who else is playing in the team and where he is in terms of experience vis-à-vis the others," Hodgson told "He'll captain the Norwegian team certainly within the near future - whether he captains our team in the near future depends on what other players are around.

"When we have Brian McBride there's no way he's going to wrest the armband from Brian who is a senior player and has been at the Club a long time.

"I think he's outstanding," added Hodgson when asked about Hangeland's impact. "He has the capacity to be one of the better centre backs in the league. Since he's come to us he's been very important because of his quality. When I say quality, I mean quality defensively and offensively. He's a key figure in the team every week."
