  • Tony Khan engaged in a Twitter spat with an unhappy supporter

Fulham's vice-chairman, Tony Khan, told a fan to "go to hell" in a tweet after Saturday's 2-1 defeat by Burnley left the promoted club mired in the relegation zone.

The son of Fulham owner Shahid Khan told a supporter to "go to hell" and insisted he will "die at this club" after being told to leave.

Responding to criticism over the tone of his tweet, Khan complained the fan was among those who "give no credit when things go well, including giving me stick immediately after promotion".

Khan expanded further in response to an Associated Press tweet posting an article on the exchange.

Having promised not to surrender and claimed there will be "multiple signings" this month, one fan replied: "Leave my club please". He was referring to the three-minute first-half spell in which Joe Bryan and Denis Odoi both scored own goals, although he could just as easily have been discussing the club's entire season.

The Italian coach must have found the defeat particularly galling given the quality of the goal with which his team opened the scoring in the first two minutes, courtesy of a breathtaking piece of skill from Andre Schurrle.

Calum Chambers headed against the Burnley bar soon after and Fulham substitute Luciano Vietto was denied after the break by James Tarkowski and Tom Heaton - two players hoping to impress England boss Gareth Southgate, who was watching from the stands. Fulham remained second to last.
