Senderos glad to be back

Philippe Senderos was glad to finally make his Fulham debut in the 3-0 defeat of Sunderland - some seven months after joining the club. The Swiss centre-back, signed on a free transfer from Arsenal in June 2010, has missed most of the campaign after tearing his Achilles tendon just days before the new season. However, the 26-year-old stepped into the first team for the absent Brede Hangeland at the Stadium of Light and admitted it had been a long wait. Senderos told the club's official website: "It took a little while to find my feet, which is natural, but of course, this was a good day all round. "I had waited a long time to make my debut for the club and I'm delighted to have finally pulled on the shirt. "But of course, it is never about individuals - the team performed very well and in what was a difficult game we got the job done. I think we showed a lot of character and quite often in football, that can be the big difference."
