Meulensteen wants to take a bit of Fergie to Fulham

Rene Meulensteen hopes to transfer Sir Alex Ferguson's thirst for a challenge into his fight to keep Fulham in the Barclays Premier League.

I've been fortunate to sit alongside one of the most successful managers in Sir Alex Ferguson.

He taught me a lot but the one thing that stood by me, in life, in football: you're faced constantly by challenges.

You want challenges, and sometimes they are in adversity.

The most important thing is to accept the challenge, embrace the challenge, and enjoy taking that challenge on.

I will definitely draw into the experiences that I've had of Sir Alex Ferguson.

I've spent a long time working with top, top players: hard work and the good work that will go in will eventually manifest itself on the pitch.
