Under-fire Magath gets Khan backing

The Cottagers have lost the first four games of the 2-14-15 Championship under Felix Magath.

Fulham owner Shahid Khan has given his backing to manager Felix Magath despite their poor start to the 2014-15 season, and told the Evening Standard that the German is the "ideal" man to lead them back to the Premier League.

The Cottagers' promotion bid has started in the worst possible fashion with fans calling for Magath to be sacked after four straight defeats left them rooted to the foot of the Championship.

The 61-year-old took over at Craven Cottage in February but could not prevent Fulham's relegation from the top flight, and his record currently stands at three wins from 16 games in charge.

Nevertheless, Khan -- who has already dispensed with the services of Martin Jol and Rene Meulensteen since buying the club last year -- is not about to make it a hat trick of sackings.

"We chose Felix as we wanted somebody with experience of dealing with the threat of relegation," Khan said on Tuesday.

"Even then, we knew we might not be successful and if, God forbid, the worst happened how would we deal with it.

"We knew the Championship was more physical. You've got to have a Plan A (to avoid relegation) and a Plan B (for promotion). Felix was the ideal person to execute both plans."
