Fulham vice chairman and sporting director Tony Khan has shared an update with fans after he visited the club’s training ground for a meeting with Scott Parker and others.
The Whites are looking to bounce straight back into the Premier League following their emphatic relegation last season and Khan is the man trying to orchestrate it, giving Parker the job full time before backing him in the transfer window.
Writing on his personal Instagram account on Friday afternoon, Khan said:
“It’s great to be at the @fulhamfc training ground today. It’s made me so happy to see the squad and the manager and the staff. It’s awesome to see so many old friends, it’s wonderful to be home. I’m so proud of everyone here and I love this place and this club very much. I’m very excited for tomorrow’s match, and I’m looking forward to seeing many of you at the Cottage! Come on Fulham!”
Khan took up his position in February of 2017, overseeing the club’s rise back into the top-flight during his first full season at Craven Cottage as Fulham beat Aston Villa in the 2018 play-off final.
That is his ambition for the current campaign as well and after bringing in the likes of Anthony Knockaert, Ivan Cavaleiro, Bobby Decordova-Reid and Josh Onomah in the summer, as well as tying Aleksandar Mitrovic down to a new deal, they have a great chance of doing just that.
This weekend sees them welcome Hull City to South West London as they look to climb back into the top-six after last weekend’s draw with Middlesbrough.
But after Marek Rodak was shown a straight red card within 20 minutes, it is a point that Parker and his team should be reasonably happy with.
However, fail to beat Hull and the fans may not be as forgiving.
