‘Great achievement’ – These Fulham fans back rising star as youngster makes debut
Fulham were knocked out of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night, but there may have been something positive for supporters to take from the 1-0 defeat to Southampton.
Scott Parker included a number of youngsters as the Whites were beaten at Craven Cottage for the second time this week, though a brief cameo from one of the club’s youth prospects had some fans looking to the future.
Tyrese Francois, who was recently named as the club’s academy player of the year, made his Fulham first-team debut after coming on as a late substitute during the slender defeat to Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side – and supporters have praised the youngster online after his runout.
Some fans are hoping for the 19-year-old to gain more minutes in the weeks and months to come, while his short-lived performance gained a positive review from the supporters.
So despite Fulham’s Carabao Cup adventure coming to an early end, it was potentially the start of a bright Whites career for Francois – as far as these fans are concerned:
