Fulham are at risk of losing head coach Slavisa Jokanovic to Werder Bremen having failed to agree terms on a new contract at Craven Cottage, according to a report in the Daily Mirror this afternoon.
The Serbian head coach’s initial eighteen month deal expires at the end of June and, although Fulham have made initial approaches about extending that contract, the Mirror suggests that no formal talks have taken place. Werder Bremen are rumoured to be considering potential alternative coaching options as they are currently locked in a relegation battle at the bottom of the Bundesliga, whilst Malaga have also been reportedly casting favourable glances in Jokanovic’s direction as they eye a permanent appointment during the close season.
Jokanovic, who guided Watford to promotion from the Championship two seasons ago, has seen his stock rise in England as he has transformed Fulham from relegation struggles to potential play-off contenders inside six months. The Serbian coach is highly regarded by the Craven Cottage faithful and has recently called on the club’s ownership to back his ambitions for the Cottagers with significant investment during the January transfer window.
