Hull City, England, United Kingdom (4E Sports) – Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen apologized to the club’s fans after the 6-0 thrashing they received from Hull City at KC Stadium, taking ‘full responsibility’ for the defeat.
“An apology for the travelling fans is right in this place,” Meulensteen told BBC Sport.
Tom Huddlestone was Hulls’ star performer, scoring the fourth of their six unanswered goals in the second half.
Captain Robert Koren scored twice, while Ahmed Elmohamady, George Boyd and Matty Fryatt each scored a goal.
It was Fulham’s fourth defeat in six matches under Meulensteen, who took over from the sacked Martin Jol.
Meulensteen, who made six changes for the game, noted that while they didn’t play particularly well in the first half, they were still in the game until Hull scored three quick goals.
“We couldn’t come back from it,” he said.
Midfielder Steve Sidwell echoed his manager’s sentiments.
“To concede six goals was unacceptable,” Sidwell told BBC Sport.
