Jokanovic odds-on to be next Premier League manager to leave

Fulham boss could be next through the exit door

The Premier League is an unforgiving league and Fulham are finding that out first hand.

After a run of five-straight league defeats Slavisa Jokanovic is now just 4/6 to be the next Prem boss to get the boot.

They looked so stylish in their Championship promotion campaign but last season’s stars Ryan Sessegnon and Tom Cairney have failed to make a telling impact in the top-flight.

New signings Jean Michael Seri and Andre Schurrle haven’t found a level of consistency, which has been compounded by the 16 league goals they’ve conceded in the last five games.

Coral’s John Hill said: “Slavisa Jokanovic is under huge pressure now to keep his job following a miserable start to the season for Fulham.

The Serbian is odds-on to be the first Premier League manager to leave their post and it is all one-way traffic for him in the sack race,” 

Despite defeat to Huddersfield earlier this week, Jokanovic may be given another few weeks to save his job.

Mark Hughes is second favourite to leave his post at Southampton at 3/1. Elsewhere Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has drifted out to third at 10/1 to be sacked.
