Fulham's new owner Shahid Khan has assured fans he will not make the same mistakes as west London rivals QPR. Supporters at Craven Cottage have bragging rights following Rangers’ relegation to the Championship, after Tony Fernandes bought the Loftus Road club and went on a frivolous spending spree. Now Martin Jol’s side have fresh funds and impetus, after Mohamed Al Fayed sold up over the weekend, and Khan says errors will be avoided. ‘You can learn from history,’ said the owner of NFL side Jacksonville Jaguars. ‘Of course I have looked at it. I am not talking about anyone in particular, but you want to learn from other people’s mistakes. ‘Randy Lerner (Aston Villa owner) and I have met when he was in the NFL, but this week I have not spoken to him. ‘Stan Kroenke? (Arsenal shareholder) I have spoken to him this week at length. And the Glazers (Manchester United) at length.’ Khan has flown out to Costa Rica where Fulham are on a pre-season tour to meet manager Jol and discuss plans for the upcoming season.
