Zamora signs new Fulham contract

10 September 2010 12:21
Striker Bobby Zamora has signed a new four-year contract to remain at Fulham until 2014. Zamora, 29, has been rewarded with a new-long-term deal after successfully resurrecting his career during two years at Craven Cottage. The former Brighton & Hove Albion striker had struggled to make the step up to Premier League level at both Tottenham and West Ham United. However, Zamora has silenced his critics since moving to west London in the summer of 2008. The now England striker has scored 26 goals in 92 appearances for Fulham, including a career best 19 goals as the Cottagers reached the Europa League Final last season. Speaking shortly after arriving at Craven Cottage in the summer to replace Roy Hodgson in the managerial hot-seat, new boss Mark Hughes admitted even was surprised at how good Zamora was. "When you come into a new situation you're not quite sure what you're getting but Bobby is a top class Premier League striker," he said. "His link up play has impressed me and is better than people give him credit for. "He's quite a package and a threat. His link up play and team work is excellent and he's a big factor in why we've started so brightly. "He's very confident in his game and he's enjoying his work. At the moment he's able to transfer the work on the training ground on to the field of play and he's playing really, really well."
