Fulham confirm exit of trio

Rene Meulensteen, Alan Curbishley and Ray Wilkins have all formally left Fulham as part of major backroom restructuring at embattled Fulham.

Speculation has been rife over the west London side's managerial set-up since last Friday's shock announcement of Felix Magath as new first-team manager.

The announcement brought an end to Meulensteen's 75-day spell at the Craven Cottage helm but, despite him claiming he had been "released", he remained contracted as head coach.

However, the Dutchman has now formally left Fulham alongside four other members of the coaching staff.

Former Charlton and West Ham manager Curbishley has left his role as first-team technical director, while Wilkins has vacated the post of assistant manager.

Mick Priest and Jonathan Hill have also left the Cottagers, while Magath has brought in Tomas Oralin as first-team coach and named Werner Leuthard as conditioning coach. - PA Sport.
