Reading's Rosenior insists no Fulham regrets

Liam Rosenior is convinced swapping Fulham for Reading has boosted his chances of becoming an England player.

The 23-year-old ended a five-year spell at Craven Cottage in August when he embarked on a new career at the Madejski.

At the start of the season he was training with the Fulham youth team after telling Lawrie Sanchez he did not like his long-ball style and wanted a move.

He said: "I would have loved to have played for Fulham for longer and pushed on and played for England, which was the plan.

"My game as a full-back is about getting forward but the way Lawrie wants his team to play, I don't think Fulham would have got the best out of me.

"I'm an ambitious lad. I want to be playing for England and I want to be playing in the Champions League when I'm 25 or 26.

"I've made no secret of that and I don't think that would happen if I had stayed at Fulham under Lawrie."
