Fulham are looking to speak to Nigel Pearson, Uwe Rosler and Paul Lambert about their vacant manager’s position, according to Sky Sports and West London Sport journalist Lyall Thomas.
The Cottagers parted company with Kit Symons after last weekend’s heavy defeat to Birmingham City, and they are looking to make an appointment quickly in order to mount a promotion push.
Pearson is an experienced manager at this level after spells with Hull and twice with Leicester City and achieved promotion with the Foxes in 2014. He was sacked in the summer after falling out with the club’s owners.
Rosler hasn’t been out of work for long after he was dismissed by Leeds earlier this season after a poor start to the season and has previously managed Wigan as well as the Elland Road side in the Championship.
Lambert is someone who has only had one season in the second tier but he guided his newly promoted Norwich side to the top flight in that one season before a difficult spell with Aston Villa.
Thomas has also ruled out Steve Bruce – the bookies’ immediate favourite after Symons departure – and Harry Redknapp after they were linked with the role.
Fellow Sky Sports News reporter Amy Lewis claims that Rosler is the only manager Fulham have spoken to so far as they look to appoint a head coach rather than a manager.
Fulham currently sit 12th in the Championship after a disappointing start to the campaign and owner Shahid Khan will hope to have a new boss in charge before they face MK Dons after the international break.
