Fulham must invest to survive, admits Jokanovic

Fulham must invest to survive, admits Jokanovic

"We must show ambition but we must know that next season we will probably not win as many games as at this level".

"We must try to dominate against teams we think we can but we must be realistic in the future", Jokanovic said.

To the Cottagers the spoils; to the Villa the heartbreak.

Cairney added: "It feels like an out of body feeling".

Brighton, for example, kept faith with veteran striker Glenn Murray after his 23 goals played a major part in their elevation to the Premier League for the first time, before then firing 12 goals in the top flight to steer them to safety.

Appropriately it was teenager Ryan Sessegnon's astute pass that paved the way for Fulham to reach the Premier League promised land with a Championship playoff win on Saturday.

However, he insists he isn't sure where his future lies come the end of the season.

"He made a system that every player enjoys and feels comfortable playing in", the on-loan Newcastle man told BBC Sport.

5 reasons why Wenger can be successful at Real Madrid
He played for three seasons there, winning two Champions League titles, and left a year before Zidane joined in 2001. The man who coached Real Madrid to a third consecutive Champions League title has quit after two years in charge.

"I've been playing the whole season not fully fit". We all are. With a big game, it's tough to swallow.

"It's not me to make excuses, in the first half in particular we didn't do enough".

Sessegnon and Tom Cairney, who scored the victor, will still be targeted over the coming months but Fulham, and billionaire owner Shahid Khan, have the financial muscle to resist overtures for a player many felt deserved an England World Cup call-up.

There was only misery for Villa as they missed out on promotion on the 36th anniversary of the club's famous European Cup final victory over Bayern Munich.

Jack Grealish was a constant thorn in the side and saw a mazy run ended by a fine stop, before being taken down by a clumsy Odoi challenge that led to a second yellow card and an anxious conclusion. "They trusted me and I feel like I have been here a few years, not a few months". There were certainly times when they wanted to rip my head off and rip the head off the players.

The 25-year-old's final game of an impressive campaign will be for Wales against Mexico at Pasadena's Rose Bowl in the early hours of Tuesday morning. "Getting sent off sucked".

If Fulham can retain Sessegnon and Cairney, they will have two significant assets as they build for next season. The last 20 minutes [with 10 men] all we were thinking about was not conceding.
