'End of his Newcastle career`- Fans react to Mitro`s remarks

'End of his Newcastle career`- Fans react to Mitro`s remarks

Aleksandar Mitrovic says he prefers the attacking brand of football that Fulham plays compared to the Magpies.

The Serbian has scored three goals in six matches since moving to the Championship club on loan in January. Comparing Rafa Benitez`s style of play to his current coach Slavisa Jokanovic, Mitro said there was only one winner for him:

'It's a different style we play here. The players enjoy the football more than last season with Newcastle, where we knew how we wanted to play, we always played on the results — that's it.'

'This season, this team, we always try to score more goals than the opponent. Newcastle was more tactically [set up]. We didn`t play as much attacking football as we play now. Obviously, it worked because Newcastle were promoted last season. I hope we are promoted again with Fulham.'

It could be said that he is criticising Rafa`s way of playing by making these remarks, but when a player is out on loan they do try to ingratiate themselves to their new club as soon as possible. The 23 year old has likely used the opportunity to praise his new manager and team mates.

He has to remember though he is only on loan at Craven Cottage, and that he will likely be returning up North at the end of the season.
