Zdenek Grygera is looking forward to being a part of the Fulham squad as they progress in the Europa League, with the 31-year-old looking forward to the excitement involved in being a part of the Cottagers' European campaign.
Grygera was playing for Juventus in the Europa League two seasons ago, when Fulham came back from 4-1 down in the first leg to defeat the Italian giants in one of the great comebacks in European football.
And with Fulham preparing to face FC Twente this Thursday, Grygera, who signed for the West London club on deadline day, says he hopes he can experience the atmosphere of that comeback again.
"Fulham turned a lot of heads when they knocked Juventus out of the competition and I've taken an interest ever since - when you are involved in a game like that it is only natural,” Grygera said.
"I've played a few times against English teams over the years and, every time, I have been struck by the atmosphere in and around the grounds, and Craven Cottage was no different.
“Even though it is small in comparison to some, the atmosphere was fantastic and made for a great setting."
Fulham qualified for the Europa League on the grounds of fair play, and have so far clocked up five wins in eight games since they started the competition at the end of June.
And Grygera, who is yet to play for the Cottagers, will be looking forward to making his mark on the side if Martin Jol selects him for the match.
