Slavisa Jokanovic has described his boss as a "special man".
Fulham owner Shahid Khan also owns the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team, who play in the big game at Wembley today against Baltimore Ravens.
Whites boss Jokanovic admitted he probably would not be going to the game during his press conference prior to the Middlesbrough clash yesterday.
But he admitted it was good for everyone concerned that the Jaguars were in town.
Jokanovic said: "I watched the last Jaguars game and it's great news for the owner and for Jaguars supporters to bring the team to London. I had a chance to talk with the owner yesterday [Thursday] afternoon about Fulham and some words about the Jaguars team too."
Khan was named in a Forbes top 100 list of the Greatest Living Business Minds earlier this week and Jokanovic hailed the Whites owner.
He added: "This man is a brilliant brain, this list in Forbes is so short, to be in this list you must be special man and this man is definitely special!
"I follow the Jaguars, I'm happy the owner's business is going the right way, but I'm worried about business for myself, I must be focused on Fulham."
