SLAV GETS THE VOTE FROM TOM

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

STAR mid­fielder Tom Cair­ney in­sists man­ager Slav­isa Jokanovic de­serves a huge amount of recog­ni­tion for trans­form­ing Ful­ham from rel­e­ga­tion can­di­dates to play-off con­tenders.

The Cot­tagers fin­ished 20th in the Cham­pi­onship last term but are in the thick of the top-six hunt this time,

“The man­ager and the staff have got to take a lot of credit,” said Cair­ney, 26. “He has sta­bilised the club and trans­formed the way we play.

“The fans are en­joy­ing our style of foot­ball and the club have given him a new con­tract (un­til 2019), which is great to see.”
