After their relegation was confirmed last weekend, teenager Cauley Woodrow and 21-year-old Chris David earned the Cottagers a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on Sunday, helping to end their miserable campaign on a brighter note.

Magath insists that in order to bounce back at the first attempt, Fulham must make amendments to their squad in the summer whilst showing faith in their younger players.

"The club had a lot of changes. Now we have to change (again) because we are relegated. We have to analyse the situation and we have to change some players," he told Sky Sports.

"We have more young players. That'll be the way to change the style of play at Fulham. We want to be a team that goes forward, plays offensive and that will be the style we'll use next season.

"It's a good sign that the younger players scored today and that has to be the same next season. "

The former Bayern Munich manager says it was crucial that his side put on a good performance for the Craven Cottage faithful - who have witnessed just five home wins this season.

"We wanted to show that we are better than we've been before, and I think we have done it," he said.

"For me, we played well and unfortunately we have only a draw but with (David's) goal - I hope it gives our supporters hope for the future."

Magath remains confident that they can make an immediate return to the top division, whilst reiterating his commitment to the club.

"We've been very unlucky with the result but I'm very glad to be in England and proud to be a manager of Fulham - a traditional club," he said.

"I like it very, very much and I think we'll have better results next season. I think that everybody will agree that Fulham are a good club and will come back to the Premier League."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
