Kit Symons appointed as First Team Manager of Fulham Football Club
The Fulham Supporters’ Trust welcomes yesterday’s appointment of Kit Symons as First Team Manager of Fulham Football Club. Since he became caretaker mananger, following the dismissal of Felix Magath, results have improved and the side has edged clear of the division’s relegation places with four victories in the seven league matches played.
Although more than two-thirds of this season’s league fixtures remain, maintaining sufficient form in order to attain the play-off places may be over-optimism, so the Trust is pleased that the contract offered to Symons is of sufficient duration for him to build a team in his own style and one that be mount a promotion challenge in the following season.
Whilst the deliberations of the five-man committee appointed by Club Chairman, Shahid Khan, have taken some time, their recommendation and the appointment of Symons has ended a period of uncertainty for the fans of the Club and, in turn, has put an end to media speculation which often appeared determined to link us with certain individuals who would never be acceptable to the fans.
