Manor beats Covid to make Fulham debut

ISRAELI Manor Solomon, pictured above, made his Fulham debut against Liverpool on Saturday after recovering from Covid.

The 23-year-old’s move to the Premier League from Ukrainian outfit Shakhtar Donetsk had been quite lengthy, but Solomon hoped it would all be plain sailing once he signed at Craven Cottage.

“I always wanted to play against a team like Liverpool and I had quite a tough month to finally get here,” he said.

“I got to Fulham and I couldn’t play in the friendlies, then I came down with Covid so my preparation wasn’t ideal.

“But I am happy that I am here and I hope that I will be able to contribute a lot.”

Solomon was told two days before the 2-2 draw that he would be in the squad to face the Premier League runners-up.
