Fulham owner appoints Murphy, McBride, Quinn to find new boss

Fulham owner Shahid Khan has named his five-man team who will conduct the search for the club's new manager.

The west London outfit parted ways with Felix Magath just under two weeks ago after a poor beginning to the Championship season and are now in the process of bringing in his replacement.

Former Fulham stars Danny Murphy and Brian McBride have been given the responsibility of finding the right man for the job and will be joined by former Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn, Nike director David Daly and Cottagers' Academy director Huw Jennings on the five-man panel.

"They each bring something similar, and yet unique, to the search," Khan said.

"They understand what we want to achieve, they're committed to the process, and they very much respect Fulham.

"They know this is a special job for a manager and they want to play a role in making sure we get this right for everyone who plays for Fulham or loves the club. And we will.

"But this will be an exhaustive, thorough and deliberate process. No decisions will be made for the sake of deadlines or convenience."

At present, Kit Symons holds the interim manager's position and it is believed that the U21s boss has put his name forward for the role on a permanent basis.
