Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has lauded the impact of Stefan Johansen in recent months, describing the former Celtic man as a great example to the squad.
The Norwegian’s career in SW6 got off to an inauspicious start when he was substituted after 32 minutes on his debut at home to Birmingham City in September.
Along with his goals, the 25-year-old has impressed fans of the Whites with his crisp passing and an impressive ability to link defence and attack with ease.
Jokanovic has seen this improvement first-hand and praised the summer signing for his improved form and his attitude around the club.
"He’s a great example to all the players. His first games were very complicated for him. He showed his ambition and desire and went from not being an important player at the beginning of the season to being our best player in the past month.
"Stefan is playing at a very high level and has shown that in recent games. We believe he can maintain then level and get even better.’’
Jokanovic also offered a beacon of hope to those players who had not featured regularly this season, saying that ‘‘tickets are not sold and all the players will get a chance if they show they can be useful and help the team.’’
