Chris Coleman is back at work this morning after being let out of hospital yesterday.

The Fulham boss was taken in with blood poisoning two weeks ago.

Coleman needed an emergency operation to remove a pin from the injury in his right leg which ended his playing career.

The Welshman, 33, had been suffering from flu-like symptoms for a month and medics later discovered the pin had been slowly poisoning his blood.

He wanted to be released earlier and has been heavily involved in Fulham’s training and match preparations from his hospital bed thanks to regular contact with assistant manager Steve Kean.

He was desperate to be at his team’s FA Cup quarter final at Manchester United last Saturday, which they lost 2-1, but needed time to recover.

Coleman will now take charge for their game against Leeds at Loftus Road on Saturday.
