Jokanovic wants Fulham to spend after promotion triumph

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic believes playing the "best football in the Championship" could give his side the edge for the Championship play-off final.

Sessegnon soon had an opportunity to double the lead, but headed his effort straight at Villa goalkeeper Sam Johnstone after he had eluded a back-line well marshalled by 37-year-old John Terry.

His players, showered in gold confetti, guzzled champagne as they bounced on a hastily erected stage still feeling the effects of the mass pile-on at full-time.

Victory was theirs, Wembley possibly his.

"Of course Fulham will be successful in the Premier League for sure".

Ryan Sessegnon continued his excellent season with a sensational performance at Wembley.

Captain Cairney predicted a bright future for Fulham after their return to the top flight.

According to the Deloitte Sports Business Group, the playoff winners are guaranteed £160 million, potentially rising to 280 million if they avoid relegation next season.

A sign outside of the East Brook Middle School in Paramus informed people to go to the auditorium for updates on the accident. One student, speaking outside Morristown Medical Center, described a truck hitting from behind before the bus flipped.

"I'm in charge of a really great club and I've enjoyed every minute of it", he said. We got a lot of stick.

Ryan Sessegnon set up Tom Cairney for the only goal of the Championship play-off final with a brilliant assist.

Cairney added: "It feels like an out of body feeling".

The 18-year-old, Fulham's top scorer, turned creator by skipping past one challenge and slipping a weighted pass through to the unchallenged Cairney, who rolled a calm finish into the far corner.

The sun of last week's FA Cup final at Wembley managed to stick around for the cliched "richest game in English football" with the victor guaranteed around £100 million even if they finish bottom of the Premier League next season. Marega would help them do just that. Luckily for Fulham, they already have a bit of an advantage over the other promoted teams.

Any worry that Fulham would buckle at the thought of the occasion or wilt under pressure evaporated.

In the second-half, moments after nearly bringing Villa level with a moment of individual magic, it appeared as though he let his frustrations get the better of him. "We'll dust ourselves down next year and try and go one better". "We must show ambition to be a Premier League team, show ambition with (transfer) money too".
