Swedish international wants the chance to show his worth

Fulham defender Fredrik Stoor has pleaded with manager Roy Hodgson for more time on the pitch to prove he is Premier League quality. The Swedish defender has struggled to break into the side since his arrival from Rosenborg last summer as Fulham's resilient defence has been reliable all season. Having played in last summers' European Championships with Sweden and securing a move to the Premier League, Stoor's progress has stalled and he was keen to point out the reasons. "Way too little time on the pitch," he said. "It's gone over expectations for the club and I am of course happy for that, but I need to play football. "I have three years left on the contract, and haven't spoken to the club yet. But I still want to play more than I do today. "I feel that I can make it here and that's not the problem. But if you look on a general level, there are very few switches in Fulham. "The defence line has more or less looked the same during the entire season. That makes it hard to show what you've got."
