Furious Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic apologises to fans after Blackburn loss and accuses his side of lacking desire

Serbian furious after Whites crash to defeat at Ewood Park

Fuming: Slavisa Jokanoivc

Fulham head coach Slavisa Jokanovic has apologised to Fulham fans for the lack of desire shown in the 3-0 defeat at Blackburn Rovers.

Ben Marshall gave Rovers the lead after 15 minutes from the penalty spot before Shane Duffy douibled their advantage just after the hour mark.

And Danny Graham marked his home debut with a late goal to cap off Blackburn's comprehensive 3-0 victory over Fulham which ended a two-month winless run in the Championship and Jokanovic was furious with his side.

“I say sorry to our fans who travelled with us to watch this game,” he said. “We didn’t offer anything special. We played without spirit, without competitiveness, without desire.

“We did not play good football in any moment in the game. Generally, they won the challenges, we did not try to play football and we did not do anything important.

“It is a bad sensation and we need a change immediately because we won one game a few days earlier, that’s history, it’s over.

“I am here for a month and a half and this game, this is a game without any spirit. I am very disappointed really.

“We are where we are right now. We must be strong. With this spirit, this desire, this competiveness, this is not enough for anything important.”
