Al Fayed has transformed Fulham from a third-tier outfit to an established Premier League club since taking over in 1997.

And Khan indicated he will use the same approach at Craven Cottage as he attempts to move the club to another level

Khan said: "I think Mr Al Fayed did an incredible job here over the last 16 years building this to where it is and it's a passing of the baton, so I'm taking it to the next level.

"I think there is a great leadership here and my goal is to sustain that and also to support the business play they have."

The billionaire owner of the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars did not reveal how much he paid for Fulham, and would not be drawn on manager Martin Jol's transfer budget.

Khan added: "It's very difficult to be specific. I'm not a micro manager. I don't plan on being involved day to day, but I do plan on giving them all the support they need financially to be successful on the pitch."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
