We asked a lot of all five committee members, perhaps more than they anticipated, and yet they gave us more than we could have ever imagined.“Each of them brought something unique and valuable to the search, but the one thing they all had in common was a strong desire to return Fulham to its proper place as one of the most admired and respected clubs in English football. I cannot thank them enough.“Kit has thoroughly earned the opportunity to take Fulham from here as our First Team Manager. We’ve been a different football club, on and off the pitch, since Kit stepped in as our Caretaker Manager in September.“His passion for Fulham is evident and contagious, and I believe the promise ahead of him is extremely bright. Above all, Kit understands and is committed to our goals, and he knows there is much work ahead. Starting today, we can begin work with Kit firmly in charge at Fulham.”last_img read more
