Fulham owner backs Magath to turn things around

Fulham owner Shahid Khan has given his backing to under-fire manager Felix Magath and says the German is the "ideal" man to lead them back to the Premier League.

The Cottagers' promotion bid has not got off to the best of starts, with fans calling for Magath to be sacked after four straight defeats left them rooted to the foot of the Championship.

We chose Felix as we wanted -somebody with experience of dealing with the threat of relegation.

Even then, we knew we might not be successful and if, God forbid, the worst happened how would we deal with it.

We knew the Championship was more physical. You've got to have a Plan A (to avoid relegation) and a Plan B (for promotion). Felix was the ideal person to execute both plans.
