Alan Curbishley and Ray Wilkins leave their roles at Fulham

Sources understand that Fulham have sacked technical director Alan Curbishley and assistant head coach Ray Wilkins.
 
Curbishley and Wilkins only joined Rene Meulensteen's backroom staff in December, but their roles appeared to be in peril after his spell as head coach was ended on Friday.

Felix Magath was swiftly installed as Fulham's manager and there is no place for the experienced duo in the German's new regime at Craven Cottage.
Curbishley had been absent from the game since his reign as West Ham manager ended in 2008, while Wilkins left his role as Chelsea's assistant boss in 2010.Continue...

Confusion still remains about the future of Meulensteen, with reports suggesting he is yet to learn whether he is surplus to requirements.
Fulham owner Shahid Khan decided to take action after last week's 3-2 defeat by Liverpool kept the club bottom of the Premier League, four points from safety.
Lewis Holtby, signed on loan from Tottenham in January, endured a frustrating spell under Magath during his time at Schalke.

No fear

However, the midfielder insists he has no problem with the appoinment and is only focused on working with Magath to help keep Fulham up.

"I don't have any fear," said Holtby. "From my point of view, it's being hyped up right now.
"I have grown as a player and my time under Magath is already almost five years away.
"We are both in Fulham to reach one goal and that is staying up. Everything else is secondary."
