Twitter reaction as Kit Symons confirmed as Fulham manager

Fulham Craven Cottage

Symons was confirmed as permanent Fulham manager after a decent spell of form as caretaker manager.

Kit Symons has today been confirmed as manager of Fulham, his first permanent managerial role. 

The Welshman spent three years at Craven Cottage as a player over the turn of the century, making over 100 league appearances for the Cottagers in a three year spell.

The 43-year-old former defender has been in charge of Fulham on a caretaker basis since Felix Magath was dismissed last month, winning 5 matches of the 9 he has been in charge of and pulling the Cottagers three points clear of the Championship relegation zone, which they were rooted to upon his appointment.

Delighted chairman Shahid Khan was full of praise for the former Wales international, saying: "We've been a different football club, on and off the pitch, since Kit stepped in as our caretaker manager. His passion for Fulham is evident and contagious.

"I believe the promise ahead of him is extremely bright. Above all, Kit understands and is committed to our goals, and he knows there is much work ahead."

Here's what Twitter had to say about the appointment of Symons, who is Fulham's fourth manager since the start of last season, with an overwhelming satisfaction the presiding feeling:
