He certainly didn’t hold back when it came to his views.
Although this shouldn’t really surprise us given some of the stuff he’s said in the past. Perhaps when he’s saying it about your own club it kind of hits home a little bit harder.
Looks like we could be set for yet another drawn out controversy over Fulham penalty problems, just like we did with the Ademola Lookman effort against West Ham United, it seems as though Ivan Cavaleiro’s miss against Everton on Sunday is garnering a bit of attention as well.
Speaking on talkSPORT Watford forward Troy Deeney seemed to be rather incensed that Aleksandar Mitrovic wasn’t the man to step forward and take it, using it as an example of bigger problems that could be going on at the club:
😤 “Mitrovic missed one penalty and now he’s gone missing… take it!”
⬇️ “It says to me they’ll probably get relegated due to their mentality.”
😅 “When the next pen comes who’s having it? The goalkeeper!?”

Do you have confidence in Parker fixing the penalty situation?
And I have to agree with Deeney here, something isn’t quite right with how Mitrovic handles things, especially given he said recently he was still the number one penalty taker within the side.
I spoke yesterday about Mitrovic’s form, and how hopefully he can get himself out of a rut, but if he isn’t stepping forward to take the opportunity to do so, then you do have to wonder if perhaps he’s feeling a little low on confidence right now. And as I said, an out of form Mitrovic probably means an out of form Fulham side, and we just can’t allow that to happen.
So something needs to be sorted, and quickly.
What about you? What do you make of Deeney’s comments about Mitrovic?
