Khan, an American-based billionaire and also owner of NFL side the Jacksonville Jaguars, purchased the Cottagers for a reported fee of £200million last summer from Mohamed Al Fayed.

In his relatively short stay so far at Craven Cottage, Khan has already sacked managers Martin Jol and Rene Meulensteen, but Fulham remain rooted to the foot of the table with Championship football next season looking increasingly probable.

The Cottagers have managed just one win from their last 12 league outings and five points separate themselves and 17th-placed West Brom.

Substantial falls in revenue would hit Fulham if they were to drop out of the top flight, but Magath insists that Khan will stay committed for the future.

"He is a successful businessman and he knows that sometimes things do not go well," he told the London Evening Standard.

"In one of my first meetings here, the owner said he wanted to make Fulham a top-10 team in the Premier League. That he wants to develop the club and the team into one that play European football. That is still the case."

Magath replaced Meulensteen on an 18-month contract in February and, despite recent speculation suggesting that he may face the axe, the former Wolfsburg boss is not fearful of his own future.

"I had a phone call with the owner on Wednesday and everything is fine," he said.

"He knows the situation and how things work. I am here to build a team - that was clear from the beginning. I will be here next season."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
