Stefanovic Has His Say!

Stefanovic Has His Say!

Our central defender has his say about the sacking of Lawre Sanchez admitting the club could go no further under his leadership.

After spending in excess of £25 million in the summer and still being involved in a relegation battle, Fulham had no option other than to discard with the services of Lawrie Sanchez

Roy Hodgson is now in the chair and Stefanovic is backing the experienced manager to be more successful and in a recent interview remarked,

'We were unlucky to lose a couple of games but I couldn't see any better if we continued in the way we were'

'The board decided to change the manager and now we must see what we can do under him in order to survive in the squad."

'It's very important to get our first win under the new manager. Everyone has been looking forward to working with him."

'He seems a very organised person. He's been coaching in other countries and knows football inside out.'


As well as praising Hodgson, Dejan has been quick to criticize the style of football played under Sanchez remarking,

'We are playing more of a passing game now, which hasn't been the case in
the past.'

'We have the players to play football at this club - internationals who are capable of it. But in some games in the past we did not play football."

'I can't blame the previous manager as that was his style and everyone is different. Sometimes it was frustrating for the team."

'If you have the personnel to play football but they are asked to do something different, it becomes frustrating for the players."

'Now I'm looking forward to working with the new manager.'


Looking ahead to the forthcoming FA Cup tie with Bristol Rovers and the future, Dejan remarked,

'All the players want to show the manager what they can do'

'The new manager will want to maybe bring in some new players but the guys
who are already here must prove ourselves as well."

'Of course I'd like the club to buy some new players. We don't have a big
squad and we have a few injuries at the moment."

'We have good players but that doesn't mean we will stay in the Premiership."

'It's difficult at the moment and when things are difficult you need to change something.

'I feel we need a couple of new players to help us.'

Hopefully, events will prove Dejan was right to speak out!

the polite way of saying that he thought Sanchez was s**t.

Maybe because he said something but did something else?
