Fulham FC announced this morning that U.S. international Carlos Bocanegra has been released by the west London club.
Bocanegra sat on the sidelines for most of the 2007/2008 season and wasn’t favored by new manager Roy Hodgson. Bocanegra did however captain Fulham for the first time in a Premier League match in September 2007 against Spurs, and made his 100th Premier League appearance that same month in a match against Wigan Athletic.
Prior to signing for Fulham, Bocanegra played for Major League Soccer team Chicago Fire.
Other players released by Fulham today are Jari Litmanen, Philippe Christanval, Simon Elliott, Ian Pearce, Michael Timlin, Ismael Ehui and Bjorn Runstrom.
