Fulham boss Jokanovic cools Guardiola comparison

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has dismissed comparisons with Manchester City counterpart Pep Guardiola.

While Jokanovic was full of praise for Guardiola, he was keen to distance himself from any comparisons to his counterpart.

"No, I don't use his [Guardiola] style of football, I try use my style or use my players," he said in a press conference.

"He's one of the most experienced and successful managers. He's shown a similar style in different places, he's shown it's possible to play that way in different competitions.

“All the credit to him; he made really important steps in the game. But to copy people is not good. It's not easy for us to match this level."
