A full, in-depth look at the strengths and weaknesses of Fulham’s new manager:
René Meulensteen’s time at Manchester United began in May 2001, where he was appointed as the club’s skill development coach*. In December 2005, he became the reserve-team manager, installing his impressive coaching methods. He enjoyed success in the 2005/06 season, winning the FA Premier Reserve League Shield, the Premier Reserve League North and the Manchester Senior Cup. Meulensteen’s successes earned him a short managerial spell at Brøndby IF, before he re-joined Manchester United as a technical director on January 18th 2007. When Carlos Queiroz left United to become the Portuguese national manager, Meulensteen was promoted to first-team coach on the 13th August 2008.
