Lawrie Sanchez new Fulham boss

Fulham have sacked Chris Coleman with Northern Ireland manager Lawrie Sanchez taking over on a caretaker basis until the end of the season. No news yet about whether Sanchez will continue in his role with Northern Ireland on a longterm basis. It seems leading his team to victories over Spain, Sweden and England hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Fulham Football Club this evening announced its decision to replace Chris Coleman as Manager with immediate effect.

Chris Coleman has provided a fantastic service during his ten years at the Club and it is disappointing that the Club has no alternative but to part company. As a team and organisation Fulham Football Club has goals to attain and success to achieve and by no means can this be compromised.

As part of the re-structure, Steve Kean will also be replaced with immediate effect.

After consultation with the Irish FA President Jim Boyce it is agreed that Lawrie Sanchez will join as Caretaker Manager for the remaining five Premiership games of the season.
