​Ranieri hopes Fulham's leading scorer Mitrovic comes good against former club

Fulham's top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic will return to his former club Newcastle on Saturday.

"I hope when a player goes back to his previous club he wants to show something more," said Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri, whose team are currently bottom of the Premier League. "I hope everything for Aleksandar, believe me, I pray.

"Aleksandar in Newcastle didn't do a very good job because when a player comes from another country it's not easy to adapt immediately to English football.

"But in Fulham he's adapted very, very well. And I hope he can do a very outstanding match.

"I don't know if they will give a warm welcome to Aleksandar but I hope Aleksandar will make a very good match."
