Meulensteen hoping that action will speak louder than words as Fulham aim to turn around ailing season
Wednesday 04 December 2013
Rene Meulensteen, who replaced Martin Jol as Fulham manager on Sunday, is hoping actions will speak louder than words at Craven Cottage this season as he prepares to fight the drop, writes Telegraph.
It has been said in the past by fellow colleagues at Manchester United that Meulensteen knew how to ‘talk the talk’, but Jol’s successor will be working on the actions of Fulham as he attempts to secure continued Premier League football at the club.
Fulham are three points adrift from safety already and are desperate for a result against Tottenham on Wednesday evening.
The 49-year-old decided to make a step up after spending his previous years on training the Manchester United squad, similar to Brian Kidd and Steve McClaren.
Muelensteen was previously left to train the United players by Sir Alex Ferguson until a Thursday before a match, showing the level of trust the legendary Scotsman held in the Dutch coach.
Fulham could certainly benefit from a coach as experienced as Muelensteen, but being able to ‘talk the talk’ may not be enough to keep the Cottagers in the Premier League without showing the actions to back it up.
