Rene Meulensteen has been sacked by Fulham after just 74 days in charge.

He has been replaced by former Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg manger Felix Magath. 

Meulensteen was appointed in early December to replace Martin Jol and picked up just three wins during his tenure.

The Cottagers home defeat to League One side Sheffield United will be seen as the lowest point, but the London side then bounced back with battling performances against Manchester United and Liverpool.

But Fulham released a statement this evening stating that "Felix Magath will take over as First Team Manager, effective immediately."

The press release had no mention of Muelensteen. 

Strangely, the Dutchman has been sacked just two weeks after the January transfer window in which he was given full backing, including Greece international striker Konstantinos Mitroglou from Olympiakos for about £11m and Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby on loan.

German Magath has been out of work since leaving Wolfsburg in 2012 but won the double twice with Bayern, adding a third Bundesliga title with Wolfsburg in 2009.
