Fulham striker Louis Saha has given his backing to the appointment of Chris Coleman as Fulham manager and hopes to regain fitness and form under the new regime.

The former Newcastle striker, brought to the club by former boss Jean Tigana, had by his own admission struggled this term.

Saha netted just five Barclaycard Premiership goals as Fulham only secured safety in the penultimate game of the season.

However, he believes next season, with the Welshman and assistant Steve Kean in charge, will bring both individual and club success.

The Frenchman endured a frustrating season with injuries curbing his progress, but is determined to come back strongly next year.

"I picked up a few injuries which was disappointing but I'm looking forward to next season"

"Chris Coleman and Steve Kean have been brilliant.

"They have the conviction and brought a very strong spirit to the team at the end of last season. It's been very important for us.

"I think most of the team will stay together and we will try to have a better season next time. We have great facilities here and some great players.

"Hopefully we will be able to progress so I'm looking forward to being in the team next season and if the manager wants me I am going to stay."
