Fulham shall this week continue the search for their next five managers after successfully landing Alan Curbishley and Ray Wilkins, it has been intimated.
The West London club, Cottagers, have been tireless in their quest to secure their managerial future through the next few prolonged sequences of defeats, one of which is due to bring René Meulensteen’s reign to an end sometime between now and May.
Curbishley will then take over, guide them to an uninspiring mid-table finish in his first season, start the next one poorly and then make way for Wilkins to take the club successfully down to the Championship.
With the expectation being that relegation will cost Wilkins his job, Fulham are keen to raid the managerial scrapheap for a few more ringers ready to be called upon as and when they are needed.
Football Burp understands that former Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham Hotspur strip club owner Gerry Francis has been interviewed for the role of Assistant Head Prefect, while Dave Bassett has offered his services as Chief Whip.
Such shall be Fulham’s circulation of managers that Martin Jol is not expected to be given the job again for at least another fifteen years.
No one from the club was available for comment as they were all too busy trying to figure out who they should be taking orders from.
