On-loan Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic has come in for high praise from former Newcastle United target and Cottagers playmaker Tom Cairney.
In an interview with the Independent reported by the Chronicle, Cairney said that Mitrovic has been ‘immense’ since coming to the club, following five goals in his last four games for the promotion chasing London club.
Mitrovic was brought in my manager Slavisa Jokanovic during the January transfer window on a loan deal until the end of the season, and it looks like being a masterstroke by the Cottagers boss, as the big striker has hit form and has positioned his new club right at the heart of the race for the top two.
“He looks hungry, he’s getting fitter and fitter every week, and he’s really causing centre-halves serious problems. On top of that he’s scoring goals. He’s a bit of an animal at the minute and, if we’re going to do anything this season, we need him.” added Cairney.
Fulham have been in superb form over the last few months and comfortably dispatched playoff hopefuls Sheffield United last weekend to further underline their promotion credentials.
The race for the title looks to be over with Wolves romping clear, but Fulham will be hopeful of hunting down Cardiff and Aston Villa in the race for second.
