Fulham midfielder Georgios Karagounis has admitted that he is happy to act as a role model to younger players at the Premier League club.

The 36-year-old Greek international recently signed a new 12-month contract with the Cottagers following a move from Panathinaikos last summer.

"If the younger players look upon me as a good role model then I'm only too pleased to be available to help them if they have any questions," Karagounis said.

"I am ready to help them because I remember what it was like to be a young player and I appreciated all the advice I received from the senior guys.

"It also gives me a lot of pleasure to help them because I can see a lot of quality amongst the younger players at Fulham. I think they have a great future ahead of them, not only individually but to do well for the team."

Fulham get their Premier League campaign underway on Saturday when they travel to Sunderland.
