Fulham part company with managing director

Fulham have announced managing director David McNally is to leave the club, and will cease “all his duties and responsibilities with immediate effect”.

McNally had a long association with the Cottagers, and was part of the team which helped Harrods supremo Mohamed Al Fayed take charge of the west London club in 1997 as well as playing an influential role in securing the services of manager Roy Hodgson who masterminded a remarkable escape from relegation last season.

A statement from the Premier League club read: “David McNally, managing director of Fulham Football Club, has today commenced six months notice of termination of employment, and will meanwhile cease all his duties and responsibilities with immediate effect.

“Pending the appointment of a new managing director, Mr McNally’s responsibilities will be shared between a number of senior employees, under the day-to-day direction of Chris Bailey.

“The club would like to thank Mr McNally for his efforts and contributions over recent seasons, and wishes him every success in the future.”

McNally has been linked with the managing director role at Arsenal, which became vacant following the shock departure of Keith Edelman last month.
