Meulensteen and Wilkins still employed by Fulham

Fulham have not sacked Rene Meulensteen and Ray Wilkins despite appointing Felix Magath as the new manager of the Premier League strugglers, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Meulensteen had been in charge of the first team after the departure of Martin Jol but was initially appointed under Jol as Head Coach. His title never changed even after assuming duties with the first team and still remains the club’s Head Coach despite Magath taking training this weekend.


Fulham are therefore receptive to the notion that Meulensteen works under Magath, despite Meulensteen believing he had been sacked upon the German’s appointment. But Meulensteen could feel he has been forced out and his position made untenable and is said to be uncertain of where he stands legally.


Wilkins had been Meulensteen’s assistant and would have left the club with the Dutchman but he too is still contracted at Craven Cottage. Neither was at Fulham training this weekend but Alan Curbishley, the club’s director of football, was. He spoke with Magath and looks likely to remain.


The Telegraph adds the decision to replace Meulensteen was made after Fulham were knocked out of the FA Cup by Sheffield United. Spirited performances at Manchester United, a 2-2 draw, and a home 3-2 defeat to Liverpool followed, but the club’s owner, Shahid Khan, and chief executive Alistair Mackintosh, followed through with the decision.


Fulham are currently bottom of the Premier League table with six wins from their 26 games, four points from safety. The Cottagers have won only two of their last 10 league fixtures, the last of which was on New Year’s Day.
