Tony Khan Reveals He Works On Fulham FC Transfers While Backstage At AEW Dynamite

Tony Khan is the Director of Football Operations at Fulham FC

Tony Khan is a busy man behind the scenes at All Elite Wrestling TV tapings. 

Outside of being AEW President and CEO, Khan is the Director of Football Operations at Fulham FC and he oversees player transfers for the English Premier League side. This is in addition to his role at the Jacksonville Jaguars and having to juggle three jobs has left Tony Khan working on transfers while backstage at AEW Dynamite. 

"Fulham Football Club, super hands-on with but [I] do a lot of it from overseas and have done it that way for six years with player transfers. And right now I think we're in the best position we've been in since my father purchased the team...In the summer of 2016 I took over doing the transfers and we brought in 14 new players and changed the team. Then within two years we were back in the Premier League and then we were down, and we got back up, and then we went down, and now we're up," Khan told Ariel Helwani

"We did it in the best way I think we've done it yet. The squad came together, they won the league championship and our coach Marco Silva is so tremendous. I think we have a great group of people there, a great CEO in Alistair Mackintosh, and I like to oversee the transfers and loans. Through the summer we're talking like this [on Zoom] for hours. To be able to do it now, you can do things like that. And sometimes backstage early in the day during a Dynamite, might be working on a transfer."

Fulham FC are currently eighth in the Premier League, having picked up 11 points from eight games.
