FULHAM boss Tony Khan delivered a sizzling bang at Deliveroo after failing to see the funny side of their relegation joke.
The cheeky takeaway firm poked fun at the newly promoted side’s Prem opener next season – at home against Liverpool.
Deliveroo tweeted, “Ooof that’s an opener. We’re here to host the relegation banquet in May, boys. Fulham – just shout.”
Vice-Chairman Khan, son of owner Shahid, hit back: “I suspect we will be in business and thriving long after your dissolution.”
Deliveroo tried to make peace by offering free credits for a snack.
They said, “Fair play, Tony. We got that wrong. As an apology, the first 40 Fulham fans to use UPTHEFULHAM will receive free credit for us.”
It’s not the first time Khan has engaged in a heated Twitter exchange.
He ruffled ex-Fulham boss Scott Parker’s feathers by apologizing for a 3-0 home loss to Aston Villa in September 2020 during their last Prem campaign.
Khan promised “better effort from this squad,” to which Parker hit back, saying, “I just don’t agree with that. You don’t have to apologize for the performance.”
Khan also tweeted a fan “go to hell” for criticizing his leadership of the club.

Meanwhile, Fulham will complete the signing of striker Manor Solomon from Shakthar Donetsk.
All sides are hoping the £7million deal for the 22-year-old is nearing completion as Cottagers boss Marco Silva looks to prepare for life in the Premier League.
Silva has lost star man Fabio Carvalho after the ace agreed a move to Liverpool before the end of the season, meaning the west Londoners needed to add even more firepower after their promotion to the top flight.
And former Everton and Watford boss Silva is hoping Israel international Solomon will do just that.
Solomon had scored four goals and provided two assists last season before Ukrainian football ground to a halt following Russia’s invasion of the country.
The winger has six international goals and eight assists in 31 games for Israel.
