Lots of Newcastle fans have been giving their verdict on the sacking of Slavisa Jokanovic, and they think it could be bad news for Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Fulham parted ways with Jokanovic on Tuesday, as the Cottagers sit bottom of the league with just five points from 12 games.

Jokanovic was given a huge war chest in the summer, and the Serbian splashed out a whopping £22m on his compatriot, potentially rising to £27m.

Mitrovic scored 12 goals in 17 Championship games last season, and it was clear his relationship with the boss was doing him a world of good.

He started this season with five goals in his first six league games, but has not found the net since.

Newcastle fans think he will struggle under new Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri, who of course found great success with counter attacking threat Jamie Vardy.

Mitrovic couldn’t be any further as a player from Vardy, and the young striker has also suffered from discipline problems under every other manager except Jokanovic.
