first_imgFulham owner Shahid Khan has formed a five-man committee to identify and review candidates for the club’s managerial vacancy.Former Craven Cottage stars Danny Murphy and Brian McBride will be part of the panel, which also includes ex-Sunderland and Arsenal striker Niall Quinn.David Daly, Senior Director of Club and Federation business at Nike and a lifelong Fulham, and academy director Huw Jennings are the other members.The unusual move comes after Khan pledged to undertake “an exhaustive, thorough and deliberate” search for a replacement for Felix Magath.“I’ve got the right five men to help us find the right man for Fulham,” Khan said.“They each bring something similar, and yet unique, to the search. They understand what we want to achieve and they’re committed to the process. And they very much respect Fulham.“They know this is a special job for a manager and they want to play a role in making sure we get this right for everyone who plays for Fulham or loves the club. And we will.”Kit Symons has been in caretaker charge since Magath’s departure and Khan has been confirmed he will be considered a candidate for the job full-time. getty Ex-Fulham midfielder Danny Murphy is a part of the search for the club’s new manager center_img 1last_img read more
