Fulham have announced the appointment of Slavisa Jokanovic as their new head coach.

The appointment comes 49 days after the sacking of Kit Symons, during which time Fulham have found themselves battling to stay clear of the relegation zone.

A winless run stretching back to late October sees Fulham hovering just three points above Bristol City in 22nd place and chairman Khan has moved to appoint a manager with proven experience in the Championship.

Jokanovic guided Watford to top flight promotion before departing in acrimonious circumstances as the club prepared for their top flight campaign.

In a statement Khan said: "I am extremely proud to announce that Slavisa Jokanovic will be joining Fulham as our First Team Head Coach.

"We considered many quality candidates for what we considered to be one of the best positions in football, and I personally interviewed most of them.

"While the search was time-consuming and painstaking at times, I knew that when the process was complete that Fulham would have the best man possible for this opportunity and challenge.

"Slavisa's credentials and passion for the job rose to the top through every stage of this process, and we cannot wait to welcome him to Motspur Park and Craven Cottage to get things going in the right direction for the second half of the season."

Former Chelsea midfielder Jokanovic had been managing in Israel since departing Watford. His former Maccabi Tel Aviv side currently sit second in the league and were dumped out of Europe after finishing bottom of their Champions League group.
