Brown named new Fulham skipper
Michael Brown has been appointed Fulham`s club captain following Luis Boa
Morte`s departure to West Ham.
The midfielder`s first outing as full-time skipper will be this afternoon`s FA
Cup third round tie at Leicester.
'Michael Brown is an infectious player who's led by example this season
through his performances on the pitch,' manager Chris Coleman told Fulham`s
'He's been there for us all season and has possibly been one of the club's
most consistent players.
'Since he joined Fulham, he's been terrific and performed brilliantly in
midfield in the absence of a number of injured players - he was the obvious
choice to take over as club captain.'
Boa Morte completed a move to Upton Park for an undisclosed fee yesterday.
