Rene Meulensteen Joins Fulham Football Club

Rene Meulensteen opted against taking a role in David Moyes' backroom staff at Old Trafford

Fulham Football club have confirmed the appointment of Rene Meulensteen as head coach of the club, and according to the west London club's website, they are delighted with the arrival of the former Man U assistant coach.

Fulham FC Chief Executive Officer, Alistair Mackintosh said: “We’re all delighted to welcome Rene to Fulham. There was always going to be a battle for Rene’s services and, with the assistance of our Chairman Shahid Khan, we’ve been able to bring one of the best coaches in the world to Fulham.” 

Meulensteen who had worked at Manchester United for more than a decade and alongside Sir Alex Ferguson during a second spell at Old Trafford between 2007 and last summer said: 
“I was impressed by the vision of Shahid Khan and Alistair Mackintosh. I’ve spent many hours talking with Martin Jol and we share a vision of how football should be played and how players should be developed. It’s our job to make sure we can bring this vision to life on the pitch for the fans.”

Feeling the pressure: Fulham boss Martin Jol has seen his side lose their last three games

So with the presence of these two coaches of timbre and calibre in the club, who gets to lead the dugout, who will be the real boss?
