Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic has revealed he wants to emulate the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger by staying at the club for years, according to Get West London.
The man who led Watford to promotion last season returned to English football back in December to takeover at Craven Cottage amid their relegation battle.
He recently admitted that supporters cannot be happy with the performance of the team this season, despite having secured survival with a 1-1 draw away from home at Ipswich.
It’s otherwise been a miserable season for the Cottagers, who are widely expected to lose star striker Moussa Dembele to close rivals Chelsea this summer.
While the Serbian coach understands the nature of modern day football, he has revealed that in his mind, he is in West London for the long haul.
“Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger? It’s nice history but we are living a modern life and teams don’t have the time to wait as much for success’, he stated.
“I’m here, and I like to be here. In my mind, I’m staying here 20 years. In reality, I don’t know what’s going to happen – and I have to accept it.”
Can Jokanovic lead Fulham up the league next season?
