Fulham boss Sanchez: Transfer windows have made managers targets

Fulham boss Lawrie Sanchez says the transfer windows system has heaped more pressure on managers in the media.

"I do not think the transfer window has turned out as everybody expected," he said.

"The idea was you would close the window and the manager would get on with the team they have got.

"Because there are no transfers between September and January, the new game on the block is name the next manager to get sacked.

"That's what all the speculation is, because any transfer talk is pretty irrelevant in that time.

"It has put extra pressure on managers and has not helped the situation."
