Fulham owner Shahid Khan is pleased with the appointment of new football director Alan Curbishley.
Khan was writing in his match programme notes for yesterdayâ€™s defeat to Sunderland.
"Alan is a strong complement to RenÃ©, both from the directorsâ€™ box on match day and during training at Motspur Park throughout the week.
"His years of experience in the league, combined with his overall perspective on the game are most welcome additions to our operation. Alan will also provide competitive analysis, ideas on tactical strategy and a very valuable point of view during the winter and summer transfer windows.
"And finally, Alan has proven to bring the best out of players, as his time with Scott Parker and Darren Bent during earlier and successful periods in their respective careers will attest.
"It was no wonder that RenÃ© viewed the addition of Alan as an important step toward achieving our potential, and he had my full support to make it happen. Weâ€™re delighted that Alan accepted."
