Fulham sack Kit Symons

Fulham announce that manager Kit Symons has been sacked after 14 months in charge at Craven Cottage.

Fulham have announced that Kit Symons has been dismissed from his post as manager following the side's loss to Birmingham City in the Championship.

The Cottagers, who have won just twice in their last seven outings in the league, lost 5-2 yesterday, leaving them 12th in the table, eight points outside the playoff places.

Club chairman Shahid Khan told the club's website: "No one can ever doubt the effort and commitment that Kit put into Fulham, not only as first team manager, but also as a player here, and as a key figure in the success of our academy.

"Kit came through for us last year at this time and helped stabilise our club on and off the pitch, and we're very grateful for that and his many other contributions over the years.

"It is now time to take Fulham to the higher level of success that we expect from our first team manager and our players, and our supporters here in London and throughout the world deserve."

Symons took charge of Fulham in September 2014 following the departure of Felix Magath.
