Collins praises Tigana

last updated Tuesday 05th September 2000, 12:45 PM
John Collins says it doesn't surprise him one iota that Jean Tigana has been an instant success at Craven Cottage.

The Scottish midfielder joined Tigana at yesterday's manager of the month presentation and will be by his side for the rest of the season.

"I know all about Jean Tigana from my time at Monaco and I knew he would be successful here. "I know how he works, how he prepares a team and how he coaches a side and so I am not at all surprised that he is a success."

It is clearly a two-way admiration society, because Tigana was quick to praise Collins' part in Fulham's start to the season.

"John is very important to me - especially because he can speak English!," he joked. "He is able to tell the players exactly what I want but also he is a very good example for the young players."
