Opposition view: Slavisa Jokanovic

17 October 2014

New Watford head coach Slavisa Jokanovic is set to take charge of his first game this weekend when the Hornets head to Hillsborough.

The Vicarage Road club have appointed their fourth head coach in a matter of five weeks but Jokanovic believes he is the man to take the club forward.

Ahead of the trip to Hillsborough, he said: “The situation is a little bit strange. But it's not the players' fault.

"This is part of football. Some lose their job and some find a job, I am trying to look at what is in front of me.

“I expect the team to find stability with me and they are ready to go.”

During his playing days, Jokanovic represented Chelsea between 2000-02 but having returned to these shores on the opposite side of the white line, the Serb is keen to ensure Watford remain at the top of the Championship.

“I am in England. My team are going to compete in the Championship and I respect this competition.

"We are optimists and believe we can have a good season and be in contention. There are many games in front of us."
