In an interesting interview with Fulham goalkeeper Kasey Keller, US SoccerPlayers.com talks to Keller about his life in London which he calls his second home. He speaks about his frustrating injury, his time with Lawrie Sanchez as well as his new manager Roy Hodgson. He also laments the quick out of the U.S. World Cup team and what the future may hold for him. He’s also questioned about the newest American to come to Fulham.
Yes, it’s a wide ranging interview.
I’ve had a great life in London over three different teams now, in three different regions of London, so I feel very comfortable now in this city – this is really my second home.
On the Americans at Fulham:
Fulham is a very friendly club, and the American guys have taken to it very well. The fans have taken to the American players, to Brian obviously, and Carlos [Bocanegra] starting it off, and Clint [Dempsey] coming in and scoring a good goal to keep them up last year. So I think there’s a good affection, and I think because of that there are a lot of American ex-pats in London who have really taken to Fulham as their club.
On Eddie Johnson:
I’ve talked to Eddie lots of different times throughout his National Team career about the possibility of coming here, and I’m just glad it’s finally happened and that the work permit came through. Now it’s just up to him to prove that he’s the player Fulham hopes he is, and that he hopes he is. The opportunity’s now here for Eddie, and it’s one I’m sure he’ll take with both hands.
