No regrets for Kacaniklic

Highly rated midfielder Alex Kacaniklic believes he made the right choice leaving Liverpool for Fulham.

The Sweden international will face his former manager Roy Hodgson, who sold him to Craven Cottage in August 2010, when his country host England on Wednesday.

But the 21-year-old, who has made a bright start to the English Premier League season, insists he is not out for revenge.

“I didn’t speak to Roy Hodgson that much at Liverpool. I was only there for a month or two when he was manager,” Kacaniklic told reporters.

“It was my decision to leave and go to Fulham and he let me go. It was up to me if I wanted to go.

“I had to move to develop my career. It has gone very well at Fulham and it feels like I made the right move and it was a good decision.

“I am not out for revenge. Like I said, it was my decision and Roy is a good coach. He’s done a lot of good things in football and is well respected throughout the game.”

Kacaniklic is also looking forward to the prospect of meeting Steven Gerrard again.

“When I was young I trained with the first-team squad at Liverpool, with people like Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard,” he said.

“Steven was a great help, passing on good advice about things like passing. He is one of the players I look up to. It will be nice to meet him again and to get to 100 caps (as he is set to do on Wednesday) is a fantastic achievement.”

The ex-Helsingborg youngster is delighted to have been a part of two recent impressive comebacks – a member of the Sweden side who came from 4-0 down to draw 4-4 against Germany in October and, on Saturday, a scorer in Fulham’s 3-3 draw at Arsenal.

“Everything is going well for me at the moment and it was a fantastic feeling to score against Arsenal,” Kacaniklic said.

“That was one of my biggest games so far – although I played in the 4-4 draw with Germany last month after we had trailed 4-0, which was also a pretty big game. I can’t really explain what happened.

“The last few months have been a bit of a whirlwind but I am enjoying myself at the moment.”
