Felix Magath replaced Muelensteen as Fulham boss.
Fulham, the Premier League’s bottom club, have appointed former Bayern Munich boss Felix Magath as manager on an 18-month contract with immediate effect.
However, a statement on the London club’s website made no mention of the position of current head coach Rene Meulensteen, who told the BBC: “They have hit the panic button on emotion and fear – but hey ho, that’s football.”
Fulham, at the foot of the Premier league table on 20 points following a dramatic last-gasp 3-2 home defeat to Liverpool on Wednesday, are currently four points adrift of safety and have 12 games between now and the end of the season to save themselves from relegation.
Hugely experienced Magath won the Bundesliga title twice with Bayern and has also managed seven other German clubs.
