Fulham manager, Slavisa Jokanovic, was disappointed after his Fulham team lost 3-0 at Everton on Saturday afternoon, and warned his side to adapt to the Premier League.
Jokanovic felt it was time for a reality check for his Fulham side and that they need to return to winning ways, and as soon as possible.
“We must understand where we are and that we could pay a really expensive price if we don’t adapt ourselves to this,” Jokanovic told BBC.
“We are a seven games-old Premier League team and we showed some quality – we were brave and tried to follow our style.
“I can find both positives and negatives from today’s game. We are in a kind of growing-up process.”
Today’s result sees Fulham slip to 16th in the Premier League and after the West London outfit spent big during the summer transfer window, they can not afford to lose the lucrative perks of the Premier League by going straight back down to The Championship, next season.
The Cottagers are at home to in-form Arsenal next Sunday, so things will not be getting easier for Jokanovic’s side any time soon. After the international break, Cardiff and Fulham meet in the Welsh capital in what could be an early-season relegation ‘six-pointer’.
