Miller survives axe at Fulham

Fulham’s Australian assistant coach Scott Miller is set to remain with the Premier League club following the demotion of Rene Meulensteen.

German Felix Magath has been brought in to replace Meulensteen at the relegation-threatened outfit. It has been reported that technical directorAlan Curbishley and assistant Ray Wilkins are also likely to leave Fulham. It is believed Meulensteen has been offered a role on Magath’s staff but will likely depart.

Miller has been with Fulham for the past seven years and Magath will be the fifth manager he has worked under. The 32-year old originally joined the Cottagers to work with the club’s academy and has been promoted up to first-team duties.

Magath will be the third manager Miller has assisted at Fulham this season, after the exits of Martin Jol and Meulensteen. The west London club are stuck deep in a relegation battle, currently sitting in last place on the Premier League table with just 20 points.

Fulham haven’t won a match in their last seven games, their last victory coming in a 2-1 win over West Ham on New Years Day.
