Fulham

Ranieri wants huge home support

7th February 2019, 18:28 by James Mason

Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri wants passionate home support when his side take on Manchester United at home on Saturday.

The Cottagers are 19th in the Premier League heading into this weekend's fixtures, seven points from safety, and defeat to the Red Devils would be a major blow to the club's chances of avoiding the drop this season.

Fulham have lost five of their last six matches in all competitions although they did win their most recent home outing, as they came from 2-0 down at half-time to beat Chris Hughton's Brighton 4-2.

Ranieri has now called on the home supporters to help them secure a much-needed three points against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's United.

"I had to motivate the players, be positive to give positivity to my players. I hope also our fans at home give us something more to be solid and concentrate until the end," he said at a press conference.

"We know these teams are very strong, but I think it's much better to play at home than away and in these matches we have to get some points. It's very important to get points against these teams."
