Fulham defender Hangeland: Elm was outstanding

Brede Hangeland was delighted for Fulham teammate David Elm after his first ever Premiership goal in their win over Burnley.

The Swede created the opener for Danny Murphy before tucking home a second himself.

"I thought David Elm was outstanding," Hangeland said.

"No-one knows him and he hasn't really played a lot at this level, but he really showed that he can play and all credit to him.

"He's got that nice Scandinavian mentality where he comes to a club and sees that he has to work really hard to get to the right level and that's what he's done.

"He's worked hard in the gym and worked hard in every session and it paid off. I'm delighted for him."
