What next for Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic?

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 17 May 2017, 12:12

Slavisa Jokanovic agonisingly missed out on the chance of becoming the first foreign boss to bag two promotions up to the Premier League after his Fulham side lost 2-1 on aggregate to Reading in the play-off semi-finals.

Now the club’s season has come to a close, we ponder where the Serbian will be plying his trade next term.

Despite missing out on the third and final Premier League promotion spot, Jokanovic can fondly look back on a decent campaign, during which his troops played some of the best football in the division, as they impressively hauled back Leeds to grab a place in the top-6.

An understandably disappointed, yet determined, Jokanovic has since said that he’s keen to go one better next season, although he understandably wants reassurance from the board that his best players remain at Craven Cottage.

Fulham are likely to be swamped with offers for their main men, which includes Jokanovic himself, who currently features in the next West Ham, Middlesbrough and Watford manager markets.

Back in February Jokanovic put pen to paper and signed a new two-year deal with the west London outfit, as he extended his stay through to the summer of 2019.

However, the well-travelled boss, who has managed teams in Spain, Israel, Serbia, Bulgaria and Thailand, could well be swayed by a move to one or two top-flight clubs, who could well be searching for a new gaffer this summer.

Jokanovic led Watford up to the Premier League in 2015, but then left the club, meaning he’s yet to manage in England’s top-flight. Rumours are rife that the Hornets could part ways with Walter Mazzarri in the summer, and if this is the case, many fans would welcome the return of the 16/1 priced Jokanovic.

If reports are to be believed then West Ham could be searching for a new boss should they dispense of Slaven Bilic, with Jokanovic an 8/1 shot for the Hammers post, and if Southampton sack Claude Puel then he will no doubt be one of the names under consideration.

Alternatively, a move to relegated Middlesbrough (14/1) has been mentioned, although it’s difficult to imagine Jokanovic leaving Fulham for a fellow second-tier side.
