Fulham owner Shahid Khan has written an open letter to supporters of the club via the Lilywhites’ official website, as the wait for the season’s resumption continues.
The current situation has provided a truly unique set of circumstances for everyone to have to deal with, football clubs included.
Fulham, of course, have had their promotion charge put on hold with them just six points outside of the top two and plenty of games left in order to make that deficit up.
When the game is given the green light, focus will be on making up that ground, then, but in the meantime, Khan has sought to send a message to fans and offered several updates.
Among them, he revealed that the players were in good shape and those running the club below him are in a positive frame of mind.
“I am in constant contact with CEO Alistair Mackintosh and am updated daily by my son Tony, who serves you as the Club’s Director of Football. The word I hear from both is enthusiasm and optimism are still very much in great supply, both within the Club and among our supporters and partners. Our players have stayed healthy and safe, and those who were injured have got themselves fit for whatever may await.”
Aside from league matters, the Cottage was also undergoing plenty of construction work and Khan also offered an update around that.
“One update I want to share is to note that our commitment to Fulham Pier is no less today than prior to the pause in our season on March 13. As a matter of fact, construction continues just as it would have otherwise, with crews adhering to strict safety and social distancing practices as prescribed by borough and city officials. While all of us at Fulham are mindful and respectful of the situation the entire world is experiencing with this pandemic, our continued progress on the project is good news that I thought we could use and is appropriate to share.”
