Alan Curbishley and Ray Wilkins have left Fulham with immediate effect, but head coach Rene Meulensteen still remains under contract according to reports.

It has been a whirlwind few days at Craven Cottage, with Friday’s shock appointment of Felix Magath as first-team manager resulting in Meulensteen’s spell at the helm ending after just 75 days.

The deposed head coach claimed on radio that chief executive Alistair Mackintosh had told him that he had been “released”, it is understood he has not left the west Londoners.

However, the same cannot be said for first-team technical director Curbishley and assistant manager Wilkins, who are understood to have left the club following talks with Magath.
