oneRsene Wenger, Leonardo Jardim and Andre Villas-Boas beat the chance to beat Fulham before they appointed Claudio Ranieri.
Slavisa Jokanovic struck on Wednesday morning with Fulham's bottom of the Premier League after six consecutive defeat, despite spending almost £ 100m on the summer transfer market.
Sacking is the first this season made by a Premier League club and can lead to other departures. Such a dramatic move can lead to a domino effect. Mark Hughes, manager of Fulham's next opponent, Southampton seems to be particularly pressed, not least because of the upheaval that is in the top of the club where Vice President Les Reed has been dismissed.
In his statement confirming Ranieri's appointment, Fulham said they had considered and talked with a number of candidates. Telegraph Sport can reveal that they included Wenger and both Jardim, who recently left Monaco after winning the French title two years ago as he led them to the Champions League semifinal and is considered by a number of Premier League clubs and former Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur boss Villas-Boas. It is understood that all three executives voluntarily rejected the opportunity to talk with Fulham.
Wenger is determined that he can not handle another Premier League club, who has left Arsenal at the end of last season and is waiting for the right opportunity abroad. Bayern Munich, they would win Niko Kovac, would be of interest to Wenger.
