Nelson Mail - - Sport -

Ful­ham vice-chairman Tony Khan told a fan to ‘‘go to hell’’ in a tweet af­ter the 2-1 loss to Burn­ley left the Lon­don club with only one win in nine English Premier League games. Khan tried to ease con­cerns of fans by promis­ing ‘‘mul­ti­ple sign­ings to im­prove the squad’’ in the Jan­uary trans­fer win­dow while stress­ing on Twit­ter: ‘‘It’s on our play­ers now to fight, fin­ish & win.’’ But the son of Amer­i­can owner Shad Khan re­acted an­grily to one sup­porter re­spond­ing: ‘‘Leave my club please.’’ Tony Khan, who is di­rec­tor of foot­ball op­er­a­tions at Ful­ham, replied : ‘‘Never. I’ll die at this club. Go to hell.’’ Re­spond­ing to crit­i­cism over the tone of his tweet, Khan com­plained the fan was among those who ‘‘give no credit when things go well, in­clud­ing giv­ing me stick im­me­di­ately af­ter pro­mo­tion.’’
