Kerim Frei says Fulham is a great club to be at as a young player.

Due to both Premier League and Europa League commitments, Fulham have handed first-team debuts to several players this campaign.

Frei, who has made six appearances for The Cottagers this season, was full of praise for both players and staff at the club.

"Martin Jol is a calm manager," he said. "He knows exactly what he is doing. He gives the younger players an opportunity as well, such as Alex Kacaniklic, who was on the bench against Sunderland.

"He is a really good coach that wants to help players. If you are on the table for food, the younger players sit with the older ones. Being with the senior players is a great plus."

"I always talk to them and they help you. They are great boys," added the midfielder.

The 18-year-old has mostly featured as a substitute, but played the full 90 minutes as well as extra time in the Carling Cup game against West London rivals Chelsea.

"It has been quite a good season so far," Frei said.

"I started against Chelsea [and played] for 120 minutes and also the Europa League games as well.

"I think for every kid it is a dream to play in the Premier League [against the biggest clubs]. To play against a team like Chelsea, that was special."

Frei will look to gain some more first team experience in the coming weeks with Fulham playing eight games in December.
