Premier League: Fulham finally make it official that Rene Meulensteen has left the club



Fulham have finally confirmed that Rene Meulensteen has left the club, along with coach Ray Wilkins and Director of football Alan Curbishley.

The club have also announced that Tomas Oral and Werner Leuthard have joined the back room staff, to become first team coach and conditioning coach respectively.

The pair had already been spotted taking training at the club, having been brought in by new manager Felix Magath, who was appointed on Friday.

Despite Magath's appointment, there was still uncertainty about the futures of Meulensteen, Wilkins and Curbishley, but after a weekend of silence, the club has finally cleared the air.

Meulensteen had only been in charge for 75 days since taking over from Martin Jol, but the side are currently bottom of the Premier League and five points from safety.

A club statement read: "Fulham have officially announced the appointments of Tomas Oral as first-team coach and Werner Leuthard as conditioning coach, both reporting to new first-team manager Felix Magath, effective immediately."

"The club simultaneously made the formal announcement that Rene Meulensteen, Alan Curbishley, Ray Wilkins, Mick Priest and Jonathan Hill have departed Fulham. Terms of the parting are complete and confidential."

Fulham chairman Shahid Khan added: "I'm very grateful to Rene, Alan and Ray, as well as Mick and Jonathan, for their commitment to Fulham. Their efforts were admirable and appreciated, and I wish them the best."

"Felix has come to Fulham with purpose and exceptional confidence, and I know he's extremely pleased to have Tomas Oral and Werner Leuthard join him for the mission ahead."
