Ruiz open to Fulham future

On-loan PSV Eindhoven forward Bryan Ruiz says he will weigh up his future in the summer and has not ruled out a return to Fulham.

The Costa Rica international was allowed to return to the Netherlands on loan in January after struggling to make an impression in the Premier League for the Cottagers following his move from FC Twente.

Ruiz says he decided on the loan switch because he needed to ensure he was playing ahead of this summer's World Cup but he has not ruled out making a return to London for next season.

He told Het Nieuwsblad: "Martin Jol, the manager who signed me, was sacked and I asked his successor, Rene Meulensteen, if he still needed me.

"I was thinking about the World Cup. I had to play, but Meulensteen made me feel as though I wasn't part of his plans.

"I thought I could still help the team, but he had other thoughts - although I still rate him as a manager."

Ruiz admits his future remains up in the air but he insists he has no regrets about making the move to Craven Cottage.

He added: "Was Fulham the wrong choice? No. My first year was difficult but I played well in my second season. This season the whole team was struggling.

"I still think I am a player built for the Premier League. I can't say that Fulham didn't play the football I prefer, but I can't say the opposite either. But if you are fighting against relegation, sometimes you forget to play football. Then you get typical English football, which suits me less.

"It was the right decision to join PSV. It is going well and after the World Cup I will weigh up my options.

"I don't exclude a return to Fulham, as they can still save themselves. London is a fantastic city."
