Fulham's French International striker Steve Marlet has noted his concern if Jean Tigana leaves the club at the end of the season.

The 29-year-old also revealed that his selection for France for Wednesday's friendly against the Czech Republic has provided a "breath of fresh air" away from the pressures at Loftus Road.

Marlet addd he does not know what will happen to other French players at the club when the season finishes.

The £11.5million signing from Lyon is one of six Frenchmen in the club's squad alongside Martin Djetou, Alain Goma, Sylvain Legwinski, Steed Malbranque and Louis Saha.

"I will finish the campaign and then I will see," said Marlet.

"Tigana brought all the French players to and it is true to wonder what is going to happen if he leaves. Our destiny is linked to his.

Marlet believes entering the Intertoto Cup is the reason for the team's poor run of results, which has seen them slip to 15th in the Premiership.

He said: "The Intertoto Cup took a lot of our energy, we decided to play it and suffer the consequences later but now we are paying for all our efforts. After a good start to the season many players got injured."

"Since we have not been particularly efficient at Fulham recently this is a great satisfaction for me to be back with the French side and have (coach) Jacques Santini's trust," he said.

"The working conditions are currently tense at Fulham and it is difficult for all the players. Being selected to play in Paris is a great breath of fresh air for me."
