Fulham boss Meulensteen happy with Curibishley, Wilkins additions

Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen is pleased with their recent additions.

Ray Wilkins and Alan Curbishley have joined the staff, while Clint Dempsey returns on-loan from Seattle Sounders.

Meulensteen said: "I think there's enough quality and expertise, and we've done a great job by bringing in Clint (Dempsey) for the next two months.

"He knows Fulham, he knows the Premier League.

"Ray talks a lot of sense, he knows the game and I think he's very, very good in managing players on a one-to-one basis.

"Ray is going to be very hands-on with me, I want him with me in the dressing room.

"Alan will have a wider range of support, discussing what we've got in front of us, with us bouncing ideas off each other.

"He feels what it feels like to be in that scenario (fighting relegation).

"The last thing you want to have in that scenario is insecurity, or fear. That then affects the performances.

"It's not new to us to be in that bottom three. What we're looking at now is getting out of that."
