Slaviša Jokanović was appointed First Team Head Coach on December 27th 2015.
In a statement published by fulhamfc.com, Chairman Shahid Khan said:
“I am extremely proud to announce that Slaviša Jokanović will be joining Fulham as our First Team Head Coach.
“We considered many quality candidates for what we considered to be one of the best positions in football, and I personally interviewed most of them.
“While the search was time-consuming and painstaking at times, I knew that when the process was complete that Fulham would have the best man possible for this opportunity and challenge.
“Slaviša’s credentials and passion for the job rose to the top through every stage of this process, and we cannot wait to welcome him to Motspur Park and Craven Cottage to get things going in the right direction for the second half of the season.”
Following Fulham's 2-0 win over Bristol City in February 2017, a third straight win which lifted Fulham to seventh in the Sky Bet Championship standings, the Club announced that Jokanović had agreed a contract extension which keeps him at Craven Cottage until the summer of 2019.
“I have made no secret of my desire to stay at Fulham and to continue the project that we have started,” he said. “This is a fantastic club full of history and tradition and I am proud to be part of that and hopefully to add a little to the story.”
