Fulham boss Jokanovic won't push Mawson debut

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic says Alfie Mawson won't be ready for the start of the season.

Mawson will miss the start of the new Premier League season as the centre back recovers from a knee injury.

The highly-rated Mawson joined Fulham from Swansea City this month in a £20m deal.

The 24-year-old has been ruled out of at least three league matches as he battles for fitness after having surgery in May.

“He won't be ready. We will be waiting between two and three weeks for him to start working with us," Jokanovic told the London Evening Standard. “I don't expect he can help us before September."
