Rene Meulensteen’s first interview as Fulham boss [video]

Former Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen told Sky Sports News (on the video above) that he was surprised by Martin Jol’s departure from Craven Cottage.

Anyone who has seen their recent games will have been absolutely certain that Jol was on his way out and his post match interviews in recent weeks were especially strange.

It has been a crazy season for Rene Meulensteen who spent just 18 days at Anzhi and saw Gus Hiddink and now Jol sacked just two weeks after arriving at a new club.

Meulensteen’s first game in charge is against Tottenham on Wednesday in what looks set to be a very tasty match.
