Fulham boss urges Frei to become first team regular

Fulham manager Martin Jol hopes promising youngster Kerim Frei can become a regular fixture in his first team.

The 18-year old Austrian-born Swiss midfielder has impressed in the matches he has been involved in this season - namely the Carling Cup loss to Chelsea back in September - and more recently by scoring against Odense in the Europa League and providing an attacking threat against the Blues in the Premier League on Monday.

Jol sees plenty of talent in Frei, formerly a youth member of Swiss club Grasshopper, and wants him to push on and work his way into the Dutchman's plans.

"Frei played in the Carling Cup (against Chelsea) and was one of the best on the pitch," Jol said.

"He played 120 minutes and that was in my mind, so I thought maybe he can do it again.

"Hopefully he can become a regular for us now."
