Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic admitted the 7-0 win over Luton Town was a ‘perfect’ evening for him as he broke Guy Whittingham’s record for goals in the second tier in one season.
The Serbian striker hit his 42nd and 43rd goals of the campaign, the second which broke the record that had stood since the 1992/93 season.
More importantly, the Cottagers clinched the title in front of their home fans with the emphatic victory, and Mitrovic told West London Sport that it was the ideal evening.
“I always try to say I don’t think about the record, but everybody spoke about the record and today it happened and its very special. We really wanted a big win in front of the crowd. To break the record is perfect.”
Marco Silva’s men put in a pretty complete performance to secure the title, whilst Mitrovic has one more game to add to his total for the season as the Cottagers travel to take on Sheffield United, with the Blades needing the points to secure a play-off spot.
