Meulensteen joins Fulham staff

Rene Meulensteen says he spent "many hours" talking with Martin Jol prior to being appointed Fulham head coach in what marks a significant shake-up of the managerial structure at Craven Cottage.

Meulensteen was named as Fulham's head coach yesterday, working alongside under-pressure manager Jol, whose side are languishing in the Premier League relegation zone after a run of just three wins in 11 games.

Meulensteen, who left Manchester United's coaching team in the summer following Alex Ferguson's departure, will take up his Fulham role immediately.

Meanwhile, Middlesbrough have confirmed former Real Madrid assistant boss Aitor Karanka as their new head coach.
