Alan Curbishley has returned to football at Fulham.

Former Charlton Athletic and West Ham United manager Curbishley will work closely with head coach René Meulensteen as the club seek to retain their Premier League status for a 14th consecutive year.

Meulensteen said: "I'm very happy that Alan has joined us as I know his expertise will be invaluable as we enter the remaining months of the season.

Following Martin [Jol's] departure I discussed with both Alistair Mackintosh and the Chairman the challenges we face, and I was delighted that they supported the idea of additional support within the coaching team.

"Alan has a proven track record in the industry and understands full well what it takes to succeed. I look forward to sharing ideas and listening to advice, to ensure Fulham Football Club remains where it belongs: in the Premier League."
