Fulham will show fans we're alive - Ranieri

11th February 2019, 11:26 by Craig Smithson

Fulham will fight for Premier League survival "until the end", Claudio Ranieri has vowed after they dropped further away from safety.

The Cottagers boss was on the end of some booing and jeers during Saturday's Premier League game against Manchester United as Anthony Martial scored a superb solo effort in between two Paul Pogba goals in a 3-0 win for the visitors at Craven Cottage.

The latest defeat leaves Fulham still 19th but seven points from safety with survival now looking increasingly unlikely, which prompted some criticism from the supporters.

In response, Ranieri said: "I understand the fans want to see the players fight until the end. Of course we lost 3-0, it's not an easy result, we are in a very dangerous situation, I understand.

"I told my players it's important to show to our fans that we are alive, and that we will try to do our best until the end."
