AL IS NO CURB TO SUCCESS, SAYS KIT
FULHAM boss Kit Symons has insisted that he calls the shots – and that he wants to continue working with Alan Curbishley.
Symons, 44, succeeded Felix Magath in the dugout in October after a successful spell as caretaker boss and signed a contract until the end of next season.
However, the Cottagers’ initial encouraging form dipped and, last month, former Charlton boss Curbishley, 57, arrived at the west London club in an advisory capacity.
“I’d definitely like him to stay,” said Symons. “I didn’t really know Curbs until he came in last time at the club, but I’ve been really impressed with him.
“His knowledge and experience has been a breath of fresh air.
“I speak to all my staff about team selection.We sit down and look at all scenarios that might come up in games, and Curbs plays a part in that, as the other boys do.
“I want people’s opinions and for them to play devil’s advocate, but when I’ve got all that, there’s only one person who picks the team – and that’s me.
“It’s my head on the block and it’s the only way it can work properly.”
