Tick-tock now for Jok

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - ARSENAL - EX­CLU­SIVE BY DAR­REN LEWIS

SLAVISA JOKANOVIC is un­der pres­sure at Ful­ham af­ter just one win in eight Premier League games.

The Cot­tagers were de­mol­ished 5-1 at home by Arse­nal be­fore the in­ter­na­tional break, fu­elling con­cerns that their Ser­bian boss has not coped with the step up in class fol­low­ing pro­mo­tion from the Cham­pi­onship.

There is talk that Jokanovic has been urged by club chiefs to put more em­pha­sis on de­fend­ing – Ful­ham have not kept a clean sheet in the Premier League this term.

Jokanovic, who joined the Lon­don­ers in De­cem­ber 2015, was given a new two-year deal in Fe­bru­ary 2017.

But, speak­ing only last week, he claimed the axe for man­agers is al­ways just around the cor­ner.

He said: “There are two kinds of man­ager – the sacked and the ones who are about to be sacked.”
