Fulham defender John Arne Riise has hailed the arrival of Dimitar Berbatov at Craven Cottage.

The Bulgarian striker joined the London club from Manchester United before the transfer window closed after rejecting offers from Italian clubs Juventus and Fiorentina.

The 31-year-old scored twice against West Bromwich Albion in their 3-0 home victory on Saturday, leading Riise to sing his praises.


"For Fulham to have a player like him at the club is amazing," he told the club's official website.

"It just proves that we're working hard to push the club forward.

"He came in and scored two goals on his home debut and you can't ask for more than that.

"He's settling in well and all the boys are pleased to have him in the team.

"We'll try and make it as easy for him as possible at his new club."
