The rock-bottom Cottagers are in very real danger of losing their top-flight status but, even if that does happen, Magath insists that he is in it for the long haul.

Fulham were promoted to the Premier League in 2001 and have twice come perilously close to dropping back down, surviving by one point in 2007 and on goal difference in 2008.
