Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE -

ZDENEK GRYGERA is ready to re­write the his­tory books with Ful­ham – the club who caused his big­gest up­set in Euro­pean foot­ball.

The de­fender (left) was part of the Ju­ven­tus team dumped out of the Europa League in March 2010 when the Cot­tagers ran out 4-1 win­ners.

The 31-year-old is now hop­ing Martin Jol’s side can re­peat their achieve­ment and reach the fi­nal.

Grygera said: “Ful­ham turned a lot of heads when they knocked Ju­ven­tus out of the com­pe­ti­tion and I’ve taken an in­ter­est ever since.

“It was a dif­fi­cult night for those on the los­ing side, but of course it was a spe­cial night for Ful­ham. It’s not of­ten an Ital­ian team con­cedes four goals, you rarely see that hap­pen.

“It’s funny how things work out. It shows that in foot­ball you just never know what will hap­pen.

“I’m very happy to be open­ing a new chap­ter in my ca­reer and hope­fully I can share sim­i­lar last­ing mem­o­ries with the fans.”
