Fulham chairman Mohamed Al Fayed insists he has no intention of quitting the club as he celebrates a decade in charge at Craven Cottage. The Egyptian businessman has also said that he is delighted with the way Lawrie Sanchez has revamped the Cottagers squad since arriving at the club towards the end of last season. When asked if he will still be at Fulham in ten years' time, Al Fayed told Sky Sports News: "For 25 years I hope, it's possible. "I take great pleasure in seeing the club move in the right direction. "We've been in the Premier League now for nearly eight years. It's really a miracle. "Lawrie Sanchez is doing a great job. I'm encouraging him, I'm behind him. He's spent a lot of my money this season, but I don't regret it because we have a good team now. "He's intelligent, he's committed, and he wants to prove himself. I'm behind him and I hope we finish in the top ten."
