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.
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.
