Fulham part company with Rigg

Fulham have parted company with chief football officer Mike Rigg.

The club announced on Friday afternoon that it had “agreed to cordially part ways” with Rigg, who arrived at Craven Cottage from the Football Association in January 2015.

Rigg previously worked at Sheffield Wednesday, Blackburn and Manchester City before an ill-fated spell as technical director at QPR during Mark Hughes’ time as manager at Loftus Road.

“I am thankful for Mike Rigg’s commitment and service to Fulham Football Club over the past two years,” said club owner Shahid Khan.

“Mike made many solid contributions to our club and I know he will be up to the next challenge in his football career.”
