Fulham chairman Al Fayed backing Sanchez

Fulham chairman Mohamed al Fayed is delighted with the work of manager Lawrie Sanchez and has promised money for two top strikers should results improve.

"Sometimes you are unlucky, but I think he's fantastic in putting the team together," Al Fayed told Sky Sports News of Sanchez.

"He is supporting, caring about the players. He's a very human person. The players love him and I am sure we are going to produce quite good games in the next three or four weeks.

"We spent, I think, about £26million and if he needs any more it's no problem, but he has to deliver the results.

"I think one or two top strikers cost money, but I'm there. If we get the results, he gets the money. This is the principle."
