Alan Curbishley is shocked by his axing at Fulham.
The Daily Mail says Curbishley was told he would be fired after a short meeting with new manager Felix Magath at the club's Motspur Park training centre on Monday morning.
He feels embarrassed and humiliated by chief executive Alistair Mackintosh after he was persuaded to take on the role of technical director in a Christmas Eve shake-up at the club.
The former Charlton and West Ham manager, a popular and highly-respected figure in the game, has been at Fulham for just over three months.
Despite his huge experience within the game, Magath believes they cannot work together as Fulham battle to escape relegation from the bottom of the Barclays Premier League.
