Senderos close to Fulham return

Senderos joined Fulham on a free transfer from Arsenal last summer,

but he is yet to make his debut for the Cottagers after rupturing

his Achilles in pre-season. The Swiss international is now back in

full training along with fellow defender Rafik Halliche and Hughes

hopes he can give the defender his long-awaited debut before the

end of the season. “Philippe’s doing really well. He hasn’t got the

fitness of the majority of the squad because of the time he has had

out,” Hughes told the Fulham Chronicle. “Rafik Halliche is a little

bit ahead of him in terms of his fitness. “We would like to get

Philippe a taste of the action but we will have to wait and see.”
