Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen has insisted that he has the full support of owner Shahid Khan as the club battles against relegation from the Premier League.

The Dutchman has seen his side drop to the bottom of the table since taking over from Martin Jol at the start of December.

The Cottagers' latest defeat came on Saturday with a 3-0 loss at home to Southampton.

When asked if he was backed by Khan, Meulensteen told reporters: "Yes, 100%. And more importantly I have got the full confidence of the playing squad because they have to do the job."

Fulham are currently in their 13th season in the Premier League following their promotion in 2001.
