Wilkins out, Curbishley stays

Ray Wilkins has reportedly been sacked by Fulham but Alan Curbishley will remain as one of new boss Felix Magath's backroom staff.

Fulham owner Shahid Khan dismissed Rene Meulensteen as first team coach on Friday night, and installed German Magath in his place.

Wilkins, hired to be Meulensteen's assistant, has now left too, but Curbishley - the club's director of football - will keep his job.

Wilkins and Curbishley joined the Cottagers before New Year to assist Meulensteen with their experience and knowledge of English football.

But the trio failed to turn things around at Craven Cottage and Fulham remain bottom of the Premier League table.
