Mitrovic Breaks Record as Fulham Win Championship


Fulham manager Marco Silva backed record-breaking Aleksandar Mitrovic to thrive in the Premier League next season after the Serbia striker took his Championship tally to 43 goals this season in a title-clinching 7-0 thrashing of Luton on Monday.

Mitrovic managed just three goals as London club Fulham were relegated from the Premier League last term but Silva said: “He will be more confident next season — we need to be that as a club as well.”

The 44-year-old Portuguese boss added: “All of us have to improve every single year. We cannot judge him just by the goals he scores next season — we have to analyse many other things from him.

Fulham were already assured of promotion before their final home game of this season got underway.

And they gave fans at Craven Cottage even more to celebrate against the outclassed Hatters.
