Kit Symons became the seventh Championship manager to lose his job this season as Fulham relieved him of his duties with immediate effect.
The 44 year-old leaves Fulham in 12th place in the Championship, following Saturday’s 5-2 home defeat to high-flying Birmingham City.
Symons took charge of the West London club in October 2014 when he replaced Felix Magath and won 22 of his 64 games in charge.
In a statement on the club’s official website Fulham’s owner Shahid Khan said “No one can ever doubt the effort and commitment that Kit put into Fulham, not only as First Team Manager, but also as a player here, and as a key figure in the success of our Academy,” said Mr Khan.
“Kit came through for us last year at this time and helped stabilize our Club on and off the pitch, and we’re very grateful for that and his many other contributions over the years.
“It is now time to take Fulham to the higher level of success that we expect from our First Team Manager and our players, and our supporters here in London and throughout the world deserve.”
The Cottagers face MK Dons at Stadium MK on Saturday 21 November.
