Slavisa Jokanovic is hoping to steer Fulham to the Premier League.
His Whites take on Reading in the first leg of the Championship play-off semi-final on Saturday and are favourites to earn promotion with a number of pundits.
And it is not just personal ambition driving the Serbian on, there is the small matter of teenager Ryan Sessegnon's future at stake, too.
Fulham have always maintained that the 16-year-old breakthrough starlet will sign a contract at Craven Cottage when he turns 17, but the Premier League vultures are circling and Jokanovic believes promotion will help the club in their quest to keep hold of the youngster.
He said: "If we get promoted it’s the best way to keep him, I talk many times about him and personally believe he is in the right place, he doesn’t need change in this moment.
"It will depend on different sides, for myself I think we will fight for working with him next season.
"Ryan Sessegnon is fully committed with us and is working hard."
