Former Charlton and West Ham boss Alan Curbishley has refused to rule himself out of the running for the vacant manager’s job at Fulham.
The 58-year-old was an advisor to Kit Symons at Craven Cottage before the Welshman was sacked on Sunday.
“It’s up to other people. They need to think about what kind of manager they want,” Curbishley said.
“It is an attractive job and I’m sure there are going to be lots of people who will be applying.”
Symons was dismissed following Saturday’s 5-2 defeat at home to Birmingham, which left the Cottagers 12th in the Championship table, eight points off the play-off places.
Chairman Shahid Khan said he wanted to take the west London club “to a higher level of success” as they seek a return to the Premier League following relegation in 2014.
Curbishley has been out of management since leaving West Ham in 2008, but had a spell as technical director with Fulham in 2013-14 before becoming an advisor to Symons earlier this year.
Editor’s Note: This couldn’t be the one could it. Imagine that if Alan Curbishley does manage to get the Fulham job. I think Football fans across the country would rejoice at the fact. Long has Curbs been the butt of many jokes about being 16/1 for any vacancy when he doesn’t even show interest in any vacancies.
But for Fulham they could have the man to replace Kit Symnons right under their nose. The only thing that could go against him is the fact that he’s been out of work as a Manager for 7 years now. Will the Fulham Owmer Shahid Khan feel that 7 years is too long away from the limelight and opt for someone like Nigel Pearson or Uwe Rosler.
The Football world waits with baited breath as maybe just maybe Alan Curbishley finally gets that job that we’ve all been waiting for. Curbs we’re all behind you on this one!
