Slavisa Jokanovic has reassured Fulham fans that he is ‘happy‘ at the club – and insisted that he is unconcerned by the fact that he has yet to sign an extension to his contract at Craven Cottage.
The Serbian head coach, who has overseen a remarkable transformation in Fulham’s fortunes that sees them in contention for a play-off after two dismal seasons at the bottom of the Championship, signed an eighteen-month contract when he was named as the permanent successor to Kit Symons in December 2016. That deal expires in the summer and, despite newspaper speculation linking him with moves to Werder Bremen and Malaga, Jokanovic says he is happy in south-west London and is concentrating on preparing his team for this weekend’s derby against QPR.
My contract is over in the summer and right now I am committed to my team. It is a very important period in front of us for the team. As I’ve told you before, it is a characteristic of Fulham not to be especially quick. My profession always forces me to act quickly. Sometimes I make some good decisions and some bad decisions, but this is life.
I am fully concentrated on my job at Fulham and the people around me are as well. I am very happy here, it’s a fantastic place. I am a young man and in the summer I will be in this business 100%. Dealing with my contract is not part of my job. I have people around me who deal with that side of things. I am not ready for resting, I am young and full of energy and I will be coaching in the period that is in front of us. I am happy in Fulham.
