According to the former Fulham manager, he could have “turned things around” if he had more time to coach the English Premier League club

Manager Slavisa Jokanovic took Fulham from the English Championship to the Premier League.

But after a rough start of the 2018-2019 season, he couldn’t bring up the Cottagers from the bottom of the table.

And now, according to a letter published by the BBC, the coach just needed more time.

“I was still confident that we would have been able to turn things around,” he said.

“We have been on an exciting journey together.”

“It all started when we avoided relegation to League One in my first season, before reaching the playoffs in my second year and then achieving promotion to the Premier League on an unforgettable day at Wembley back in May,” he added.

“I feel that we gave the club’s fans a footballing identity and a team to be proud of.”

“I know this team is very capable of better performances, which we will work on straight away as we prepare for Southampton at the Cottage,” he concluded.
