Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen will manage his veterans through their busy festive schedule.

Fulham have given Scott Parker, Giorgos Karagounis and Steve Sidwell a special training schedule to help the midfielders cope with the busy festive period.

"You manage the squad in three different stages: the players above 30, the players between 25-30 and the younger ones," said head coach Meulensteen. "They all need a different approach to make sure they are ready to perform to the best they can. The Christmas period it is challenging for the whole squad, not only the older players."
