Jokanovic: Fulham struggles are a ‘part of football’

Slavisa Jokanovic insists he is the right man to rectify Fulham’s poor start to the Premier League season.

The Cottagers have won just one top-flight fixture since promotion and sit in the relegation zone on the back of four successive defeats.

Manager Jokanovic, who met with club owner Shahid Khan after last weekend’s home loss to Bournemouth, feels he has demonstrated his ability to get results during his three previous campaigns at Craven Cottage.

“This kind of situation is part of football,” said the Serbian.

“I am not here three days, I am here three years and the board must have some kind of opinion about my work.

“From my side, I have the confidence, and believe in my job. People around me are professional and we don’t try to make some crazy things.

“We know it’s not an easy job ahead of us, we must be brave and encourage the team not to stop, never give up.

“My experience in this club – this is my fourth season here – and always it was complicated and always we reached the target at the end of the season.”
