Al Fayed hands over Fulham to Khan with ringing endorsement

Former Fulham owner Mohamed Al Fayed has no doubts he's sold the club to the right man.

Shahid Khan has completed a £150 million takeover of the Cottagers this week.

Al Fayed: "Now is the right time for me to retire and spend time playing football with my grandchildren.

"I am sad but proud of our achievements. I am very grateful to Fulham's fans, the most incredible fans in the world.

"They have given me their support and affection whenever they have seen me at home games.

"I would never let them down. I have passed the club to a talented, honest and highly capable man who respects Fulham and its traditions. He is a great sportsman."
