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.”
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?
