Fulham fans on Twitter are split on Marcus Bettinelli being the club’s number one for the upcoming season.
Bettinelli didn’t get much of a look in last season, making just seven appearances, as Fulham mostly persevered with Sergio Rico as their starting goalkeeper, but now that the Spaniard’s loan spell has come to an end it may be time for the Englishman to step up once again.
The stopper was Fulham’s first choice during their promotion campaign in the 2017/18 season, and while his performances there were solid as he kept 14 clean sheets in 29 appearances, fans are still sceptical about having his as their number one.
Former Besiktas goalkeeper Fabri is also still at Craven Cottage.
It remains to be seen whether or not Bettinelli or Fabri will start for the Whites next term, but the debate certainly is a polarising one for the fanbase.
Here’s what the Craven Cottage faithful have been saying on Twitter…
Yes. Poor goalkeeper whose status is elevated infinitely by being loud and being ‘oNe Of OuR oWn!!!’

As cynical as this is, I suspect you’re absolutely correct.

Hes not as bad and hes not as good. hes just average. There is nothing really that makes him stand out. Its the last position I feel we need to look at and I doubt we will.
Big season for him as it will be first time he actually starts a season in the first game.

No. I love Betts, excellent shot stopper, and I hope he’s matured over the year. Should be our #1. Also, if you’re in Dubai, we should try to watch a game or 2 this year.

I prefer him between the posts if I’m being honest 🙂
