Being defeated is not always easy to handle, but Slavisa Jokanovic who is currently the manager of Fulham sure didn’t take well the defeat of his team against Bristol City.
The match was played on Wednesday, September 21, on Craven Cottage and Fulham lost 2-1 to Bristol City. Lucas Piazon was first one to score, and Fulham had the lead. It was the end of the first forty-five, the worst moment if there’s ever a good one to concede a goal when Wilbraham equalized the score. At the end of the first half, it was Fulham one, Bristol City one.
It was the 51st minute of the game when the moment that inspired this article happened. Fulham was given a penalty which was taken by Cauley Woodrow. He missed and as a consequence, the Fulham lost the game when Abraham of Bristol City found the net in the 90th minute of the match.
The interesting fact is that the same opponents are going to play this weekend, once again at the Craven Cottage. Fulham will have the chance for revenge, and Slavisa Jokanovic seemed determined not to allow another defeat to happen.
He went as far as to punish a player that missed the penalty by hitting him in the head with a ball!
Slavisa Jokanovic Hits a Player

This is, of course, a joke, that was made up by British newspapers.
During one of the practice runs, Jokanovic hit the ball, and it accidentally hit Cauley Woodrow in the head. He immediately ran to his player to see how serious the hit was.
Although this was an accident, we are sure that Slavisa Jokanovic will do, and is currently doing everything in his power to ensure Fulham come out victorious when these two teams meet on Saturday afternoon.
Winning streaks are necessary if Fulham plans to return to the Premiership.
Two seasons ago Jokanovic managed to win promotion to the top tier of English football while managing Watford. Will he do the same with Fulham remains to be seen?
