Jokanovic dismisses rumours of him quitting

A few weeks ago it was rumoured that Slavisa Jokanovic was going to step down from coaching Fulham after becoming frustrated from missing out on a number of summer transfer targets and this was due to the owner of the English League Championship club, Shahid Khan refusing to dish out the cash and go ahead to sign the players that were in the watch-list of Slavisa Jokanovic.

It seems like none of that was actually true as the Serbian head coach has recently came out and shut down those rumors as he has no intention to step down anytime soon.

The 48 year old Serbian manager said: “I never have had any plans to leave Fulham. If I complain about something it's because I want the best for my team, for my team-mates, for the supporters as well.

“I was very clear and I explained it on Saturday what my opinion was on this situation. I'm still in the same position. I believe we need more players to be stronger in the future. It depends on what our target is in the future. Manchester United and Manchester City buy new players. If I arrive with less ambition, I want to be successful and if I am it's good for the club and the supporters.”

When Slavisa Jokanovic took charge of Fulham on December 27 2015, he was able to avoid relegation with the club by just barely escaping the bottom zone and immediately after accomplishing this task, the Serbian manager went on to say that he is aiming to push Fulham to a top 6 in the English League Championship in this current season.

For a manager that has been so eager to propel Fulham back to the top of the English League and away from the dreadful relegation zone, it’s hard to believe that he would have any desire to leave the club anytime soon Slavisa Jokanovic himself confirmed that everything linking him with a move away from Craven Cottage was false.
