Kay Voser is all but forgotten by Fulham fans.
One of the few players flop Felix Magath paid money for last summer made only four appearances last season – and he was booked in two of those.
But the man who took over from Magath reckons Voser might save buying a new left-back – the opposite flank from where the Swiss started out.
Kit Symons says it’s a new season and a new dawn for those on the fringe, but time is running out for them to prove a point, especially as R are linked with purpose made Jake Bidwell at neighbours Brentford.
The gaffer insists Voser might be better suited to the left than the right, especially as he played there in Saturday's 3-1 defeat of Crawley.
The manager added: “We played against Villa (in Portugal) with him there.
“We’ve got Sean Kavanagh, and it’s true we’re a bit light there (at left back), but Kay has played there in the Champions League against Chelsea for Grasshoppers – so it’s not like I’m asking him to do something he hasn’t done before.
“He has the experience. It’s a new season and it’s a new start for people.”
