Fulham, buoyed by reaching the Europa League final, were celebrating again on Friday after being cleared of fielding a weak team in a Premier League match against Hull on March 27.
West Ham lodged an official complaint after Cottagers manager Roy Hodgson rested five key players for the 2-0 defeat at the KC Stadium, which allowed the Tigers to pull level with Gianfranco Zola’s relegation-threatened side on 27 points.
However, a Premier League spokesman said in a statement: “The Premier League board has obtained the observations of Fulham FC in regard to the complaint made by West Ham United about the team fielded by Fulham in their League fixture against Hull City on March 27.
“The board is of the view that no breach of rules has occurred in this case.”
