Rene Meulensteen, Alan Curbishley and Ray Wilkins have all left Fulham as part of major backroom restructuring.

Speculation has been rife over the embattled Barclays Premier League club’s managerial set-up since Friday’s shock announcement of Felix Magath as new first-team manager, following Wednesday’s defeat to Liverpool.

The announcement brought an end to Meulensteen’s 75-day spell at the Craven Cottage helm, but, despite him claiming he had been “released”, he remained contracted as head coach.

However, the Dutchman has now formally left Fulham alongside four other members of the coaching staff, while Magath has brought Tomas Oral in as first-team coach and named Werner Leuthard conditioning coach.

Former Charlton and West Ham manager Curbishley has left his role as first-team technical director, while Wilkins has vacated the post of assistant manager. Mick Priest and Jonathan Hill have also left the Whites.
