In a succession of messages he promised “multiple signings” in January but one fan replied: “Leave my club please”.
Khan, the son of Fulham owner Shahid Khan, responded: “Never.
In explaining his response, Khan claimed the Twitter user telling him to leave had been critical in the past, including shortly after Fulham won promotion to the Premier League via the Championship play-offs in May.
The fan quickly denied he had been in touch after promotion to the top-flight and in turn said he was frustrated by the fact Khan splits his time with other roles at NFL franchise Jacksonville Jaguars and as president of All Elite Wrestling.
People said the same when we were six and four points behind during the past two seasons.
We closed the gap both times.
“We can close this gap.
Following their promotion, Fulham spent around £100m on players including midfielder Jean Michael Seri, striker Aleksandar Mitrovic and defender Alfie Mawson during the summer transfer window.
But they have won just three of their 22 league games this season and have one win in their last 10 matches in all competitions.
