Kacaniklic convinced Fulham can survive under Magath

Alex Kacaniklic is supremely confident that Fulham can avoid relegation under the tutelage of Felix Magath.

The German tactician replaced Rene Meulensteen in the Craven Cottage hot seat earlier this month and guided the southwest London club to a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion in his first game in charge on Saturday.

The result left the Cottagers rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table on 21 points, four form safety, but Swedish young gun Kacaniklic believes Magath has the tools necessary to lift the club out of the relegation doldrums.

"It has been really good so far and I like his training sessions," he told Expressen.

"There has been a good pace in training and you can see that we have got a new boost.

"I have got a positive impression of him. His ideas about football appeal to me.

"Everyone now has to fight and give everything all the time, as we are the ones that have been dragged into this position.

"Nobody would have believed that we would end up in trouble before the season, but we are there now.

"All of the players are determined to fight to keep us up and I am convinced we will manage to do that.

"I am working hard all the time and I hope and believe that we will get results. It is up to the coach now to select the team and I will just continue to work hard."

Fulham will get the chance to move closer to safety when they host west London rivals and league leaders Chelsea this Saturday.
