Fulham chairman Shahid Khan believes it is time for Fulham to reach a higher level of success after the dismissal of Kit Symons.Symons left the club on Saturday after a 5-2 home defeat to Birmingham City in the Sky Bet Championship, a result that left the club 12th in the table.
Khan told fulhamfc.com: “It is now time to take Fulham to the higher level of success that we expect from our first team manager and our players, and our supporters here in London and throughout the world deserve.”
Symons, 44, took over at Craven Cottage in October 2014 and steered the club to a 17th-placed finish last term.
He won 22 of his 64 matches at the helm and they're now eight points off the Play-Off places this time around, with a trip to Milton Keynes Dons next up on 21st November, following the international break.

“No one can ever doubt the effort and commitment that Kit put into Fulham, not only as first team manager, but also as a player here, and as a key figure in the success of our Academy,” Khan added.
“Kit came through for us last year at this time and helped stabilise our club on and off the pitch, and we’re very grateful for that and his many other contributions over the years.”
