Clint is back as the Cottagers head to Sir Alex country in hopes of diffusing the Red Devils.
Duece, more “relieved” to be back on the pitch? Here’s what he told FullhamFC.com:
(….he is now looking forward to more action on Sunday.)
“That’s why you play in the Premiership, so you can play the best teams in the world so it’s exciting when you get to play in those games,” he told fulhamfc.com.
“You want to play in big games and it was great to be back. I’m still working on trying to be 100% fit and get the sharpness back. But it’s good to be back playing – I knew there was a possibility of me getting on the pitch against Juventus. Now that I’ve got the first game out of the way hopefully I’ll be able to improve on my fitness and quality.
“They told me that I would be out for between five to eight weeks and it took seven weeks. Sometimes that’s the way it goes, I’ve been in England for three years and seven weeks is the longest I’ve been out so I feel fortunate.”
Despite his fitness not being tip-top, TSG is tipping Dempsey to get the start with Danny Murphy ailing and Deuce a big player in these bigger games.
