    Fulham: Mohamed Al Fayed sells club to Shahid Khan

    Mohamed Al Fayed has ended his 16-year stint as Fulham owner by selling the club to Shahid Khan, owner of NFL side Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Khan, 62, a billionaire car-parts entrepreneur, is the sixth American owner of a Premier League club.

    During his time in charge, Egyptian Al Fayed, 84, took Fulham from the third tier to the top flight and into Europe.

    "It has been a pleasure and privilege to be chairman of Fulham football club for 16 memorable years," he said.

    having moved to the states at the age of 16, i'd be interested to know if he identifies himself as a pakistani or an american. is he really the EPL's 6th "american" owner?

    either way, it don't think it should be important and good luck to fulham...unless they're playing newcastle.
