MARTIN Jol has promised there's more to come from Kieran Richardson after a disappointing debut in Fulham's defeat at West Ham.
The deadline-day arrival from Sunderland was thrust into the starting line-up at Upton Park just 24 hours after his move to Craven Cottage, but failed to make an impact in the 3-0 reverse and was withdrawn midway through the second-half.
But Whites boss Jol has backed the versatile 27-year-old to come good.
The Dutchman said: “It was not easy for him, he replaced [Moussa] Dembele - a left-footer, he hasn't played a lot of 90-minute games and didn't train for the last three or four days but I think he will be fine in the future.
“I don’t think he is a wing player, he is more of a midfielder player or maybe even a number 10 and a left-back. He doesn't want that but I imagine he can play left-back as well.”
