Ex-Fulham captain Brevett: Even Magath not guaranteed staying long-term

Former Fulham captain Rufus Brevett can see new manager Felix Magath losing his job short-term.

Brevett feels a relegation battle requires a different approach and also did not rule out owner Shahid Khan making another change in the summer if Magath fails to keep the club in the top flight.

"He owns the club and will do what he thinks is best," Brevett told PA Sport.

"He has brought a new manager in with 12 games to go, if Magath doesn't keep them up is he going to bring in another manager to get them out of the Championship? How much does Magath know about that division?

"Sometimes when a new manager comes in you get a new kick and hopefully if they do that they might have a chance.

"The confidence is low and it is going to take a completely different mindset, there are a lot of differences between fighting to win things and trying to stay in the league. We will have to wait and see what he comes up with.

"Fulham have flirted with relegation a few times but nothing as serious as we see now, it is massive. Financially and for the fans as well.

"It means everything to stay in the Premier League. They will be doing their upmost to stay there."
