Palace's Kuqi happy after Fulham debut

On-loan Crystal Palace striker Shefki Kuqi was delighted to make his Fulham debut in Saturday's draw with Sunderland.

"I'm pleased to be back in the Premiership," the Finn told fulhamfc.com. "My first season in the Premiership was with Blackburn, I thought I did well but that's why I ended up leaving - because I wanted more minutes on the pitch. Blackburn bought a few more strikers and to be honest, Mark Hughes was fair to me, he said 'I'm not going to promise you that you're going to play every week, but you're going to play loads of games,' but I just felt I wanted a little bit more.

"I'm really pleased to be here. Everything's gone well so far and I just have to be patient, work hard and take my chance when it comes. It won't be a case of just getting in to the team and everything's there for you, but I'm training with the team and fitting in with the lads so everything's going well - slowly but surely."
