Slavisa Jokanovic creates history after leading Fulham into the Premier League

Aston Villa were denied the chance to return to the Premier League after a crushing 1-0 defeat at Wembley.

If the team that gets promoted survives one season in England's highest division, then they will receive an estimated £280 million with £170 million coming after winning the final and gaining promotion itself.

But the 57-year-old has helped to fix the bond with the fans since replacing Roberto Di Matteo in October 2016 and Villa stand on the brink of returning to the top flight ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet Championship play-off final against Fulham. You all know what Premier League football comes with and the reward of that.

His latest success will only make him even more sought after, so if the 49-year-old is to stay, he will want enough funds to be able to compete with the English elite.

Fulham's win means the full Premier League field for 2018-19 is set in stone.

He said, "I have been doing it a long time and I'm in charge of a great team with a big history".

But he added: "We must adapt ourselves". The attacking midfielder is known less for his aerial prowess and more for his silky footwork, which we saw just before the hour mark, when he escaped numerous Fulham defenders only to be denied by Marcus Bettinelli from close-range.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley and British Columbia Premier John Horgan have been at odds over the pipeline. He describes the spat between BC and Alberta holding up the pipeline like a political game of tennis.

"That (January) transfer window was successful and gave an important push for the team".

"In my eyes, over the past two seasons, we've been the best team in this league".

"The beginning of the season we had to find a solution for his knee problem, but when he came back he played like we remember last season".

"We were disappointed with the first half", Bruce said.

Tottenham have not won a trophy in Pochettino's four years in charge, but Spurs have a third successive Champions League campaign to look forward to next season as they prepare to move into their new 62,000-capacity stadium. Second half we were much better, asked a few more questions of them, and we just needed a break but we didn't get it.

The 22-year-old and the Villa fans were incandescent when handball appeals against Odoi were ignored - anger that bubbled over as he launched into an overzealous challenge on Cairney that led to a booking and on-field commotion.

"I've been playing the whole season not fully fit". He stamped on Jack Grealish, right in front of me.
