FULHAM STAY UP

Body: 

Fulham experienced the chance of playing in the top tier league of England, in the Premier League for 13 successive seasons but a disastrous campaign has seen them dropping to the Championship League.

The season for Fulham kicked off in a stellar fashion as Shahid Khan became the new owner as he bought the club from Mohamed Al-Fayed and the cash injection that the Pakistani billionaire carried into the club was expected to improve the squad but the results didn’t display it.

During the initial 4 months of the season, Fulham struggled trying to escape from the bottom of the Premier League tables which led to Martin Jol being fired and Rene Meulensteen taking over as the manager but even with the change, Fulham continued to struggle and once more they had to resort on sacking some of their staff in the managerial team of the club.

Felix Magath took charge of Fulham in February and even though the club was ultimately relegated from the Premier League, it has been confirmed that Magath will continue being in charge of the squad for the upcoming season.

A Fulham spokesperson told Sky Sports on Wednesday: "Felix will manage the club next season. There has never been any ambiguity over his future from our perspective. He wants to bring us back to the Premier League."

In a statement on the club's official website on Tuesday, Magath said: "I was appointed by Mr Shahid Khan realizing that there was a distinct possibility that we would not survive. I was not only brought in until the end of the season with the primary target of keeping Fulham in the Premier League, but to build a team that can compete in the top flight. My commitment and desire to the club remains’’.

A few days ago it was officially confirmed that Magath will continue being in charge of the team but that there are a number of changes that need to be done in order for Fulham to earn their promotion spot in the Championship League and return to the Premier League.
