Dynamic Duo to Reunite?

Thursday 25 April 2002

With Leicester City arriving at the Cottage on Saturday as the very last opponents in the famous old ground as we know it, it looks as though the Foxes are going to be undergoing something of a Fulham revolution.

When manager Dave Bassett stood down a few weeks ago, his assistant and former Whites' favourite Micky Adams took over the reins. Still regarded fondly at Fulham as the man responsible for starting the Whites footballing revolution, Adams will be sure of a good reception from the fans when he walks out on the pitch before the game.

Speaking on Wednesday, Adams revealed that the Fulham connection may soon be getting stronger, as he admitted that former Fulham striker Alan Cork was being considered for the vacant assistant manager's job.

Adams, who with Cork as his No 2 at Fulham worked miracles on very little money, said:

"He is the type of man I would want to bring into the Club. Alan is somebody I have worked with before and somebody I feel very comfortable with. He is also very good with strikers.

"I plan to talk to three or four people who might be interested at the moment, but I'm in no rush to make an appointment. But I do expect to have an assistant alongside me in time for the start of pre-season training on July 1st."

Cork's appointment became even more of a likelihood when Liverpool's Gary McAllister, who had been linked with the Leicester job, was announced as the new manager of Coventry.

The appointment of Cork to work with Adams could yet signal an exodus of ex-Fulham players from the South Coast up to the Midlands. Better not hang your boots up just yet, Morgs!
