Fulham's scintillating football set to invigorate Premier League

Fulham's scintillating football set to invigorate Premier League

Villa manager Steve Bruce admitted the future of the attacking midfielder is up in the air after his side lost the Championship play-off final to Fulham on Saturday.

The win, which sees the Cottagers return to the Premier League for the first time since the 2014/15 season, capped off what was an unbelievable turnaround for Slaviša Jokanović's side.

That figure could rise to in excess of 280 million pounds ($370 million) if the club from southwest London survives its first season back in the Premier League.

"I'd have preferred to do the job earlier but, to be promoted at this place in front of these fans, I have to be satisfied". Until recently, both Fulham and Aston Villa were established Premier League clubs. "We didn't do enough to ask them real questions", Villa manager Steve Bruce said.

But he added: "We must adapt ourselves". The Premier League is the most competitive league and we must be clever. Their owner, Shahid Khan, strode jauntily - it would be too easy to say "proprietorially" - out of the stadium he fancies buying but the serious business will soon start again and Jokanovic should start talks over transfer strategy from a commanding position. Promotion to the Premier League is estimated to be worth an additional £160million, spread over three years, which obviously would make a significant difference to either team. "We deserved it. It's not easy to play at Wembley, there is a lot of pressure", said Jokanovic. The last 20 minutes [with 10 men] all we were thinking about was not conceding.

"We have played unbelievable football this season and Slavisa and his staff did an unbelievable job".

They also only have a further year of parachute payments, which will be reduced to £15million from £33million, and Jack Grealish is expected to attract attention from elsewhere.

Centre-back Tim Ream told BBC Radio London: "We know there will be changes as that happens every season".

The decisive blow came midway through the first half as Fulham offered a glimpse of the football that has earned so many plaudits this term, with 18-year-old Ryan Sessegnon superbly threading through Cairney to fire home. "Unbelievable day", the 23-year-old Serbian said.
