Trust statement on yesterday’s Times story
The Fulham Supporters’ Trust were surprised to read a story in
yesterday’s Times by the paper’s deputy football correspondent, Matt
Hughes, stating that Shahid Khan was interested in selling Fulham
Football Club. We note that yesterday afternoon the story was amended to
include a quote from a Fulham Football Club spokesperson insisting that
‘Mr Khan has no intention of selling Fulham Football Club’.
The Trust has worked hard since Mr. Khan’s purchase of Fulham Football in 2013 to build a constructive working relationship that has allowed us to communicate the views of Fulham fans to the Club’s ownership and decision makers. This has led to what has been recognised by the Government and Supporters Direct as one of the strongest structured relationships in British football.
We are heartened by Mr. Khan and Fulham Football Club’s desire to retain their key players, such as captain Tom Cairney, and Ryan and Steven Sessegnon, as well the continued investment in Motspur Park and Craven Cottage. We believe the story that was published in the Times to be totally without foundation. We look forward to working closely with Fulham Football Club to further our structured relationship over the coming months.
