Fulham’s Manager Slavisa Jokanovic is the first non-British or Irish manager to win  two promotions to the premier league side.

In a recent interview after his side got promoted back to the premier league on Saturday playoff against Aston Villa which took place at Wembley Stadium which saw Fulham FC triumphantly defeating Aston Villa with one goal which came from the captain.

In the interview Slavisa Jokanovic says Fulham are aware of what lies in store next season after earning promotion to the Premier League with a Championship playoff final victory over Aston Villa on Saturday.

he  went further to say:

We’ve shown we are one of the best Championship teams,” he said. “We showed we can be solid, organised and work altogether for a clean sheet. The last 20 minutes [with 10 men] all we were thinking about was not conceding.
“This is a really important victory for us. We deserved it. It’s not easy to play at Wembley, there is a lot of pressure.
“We know what is ahead of us. The Premier League is the best and most competitive league, and we must be clever.
“One important improvement is now finished, and now we must show ambition to be a Premier League team.”
Tom Cairney delivered a real skipper’s display, working relentlessly and scoring the game’s only goal with a cool finish.
“The last two years Cairney has been fantastic,” Jokanović stated. “The beginning of the season we had to find a solution for his knee problem, but when he came back he played like we remember last season.
“Today he was crucial, he’s captain of the team. He showed the quality and personality to bring the team to the Premier League, and he’s an important player for us.”
