According to the former English Premier League footballer, Fulham is in crisis after spending over £100m on new players with no results
When Fulham returned to the English Premier League, every fan was excited about the future.
The team then spend over £100m on new players, but they haven’t given the results wanted and the team is at the bottom of the EPL table.
“I would probably say that the team they had in the Championship is better than the team they’ve actually been playing at the moment,” former EPL footballer Danny Higginbotham told Sky Sports.
“There’s been a lot of money spent in the summer and a lot of people have said it was nothing to do with Jokanovic, so you do have to give him a little bit of sympathy there.”
“But the one thing I would say is that more often than not when you’re at a football club as a player, the people who get the biggest money are the attacking players, and that’s because the hardest thing to do in a football match is to create and score a goal,” he explained.
“Therefore defending is easier, so that’s why you always build from the back.”
“The simple fact is that Jokanovic didn’t have a clean sheet this season and never played the same back five in consecutive games,” he commented.
“You will not have anything defensively if you don’t have consistency and if you don’t have continuity.”
