Milan's Emanuelson content with Fulham loan

AC Milan winger Urby Emanuelson was pleased with how his loan at Fulham ended up.

The 26-year old Dutchman spent just over three months with the Cottagers and despite not seeing much game time at the beginning, he was given more of an opportunity by manager Martin Jol later on and felt he benefited from a spell in the Premier League.

"After finding my feet a little, I think I adapted and adjusted to the demands of English football," Emanuelson told the club's official website as he gets set to return to Milan.

"I'd played in Italy and Holland - two very good leagues, as well as the Champions League.

"However, the football in this country is totally different - I don't think you can really prepare for the intensity. You just have to get in and play.

"My first game for Fulham against Manchester United is one of the big highlights of my career, not just this season.

"I came in during January, which had been kind of a winter break for me - I know that they do not have those in England, though.

"It was a great opportunity for me at Fulham as I'd always wanted to play in the Premier League. That was my personal highlight."
