Fulham coach Meulensteen explains reasons behind Man Utd exit

Fulham coach Rene Meulensteen has explained his decision to leave Manchester United.

The Dutchman admits he couldn't see how he would fit in with David Moyes' staff.

Meulensteen said: "Moyes is very hands-on. My role, as it had been with Sir Alex, would have been stripped to the bone.

"I sat down with Moyes and said that the way he wanted me to work under him would lead to frictions."
