Fulham midfielder Kacaniklic targetting improvement next season

The Swedish midfielder believes this summer will be exciting for the Cottagers, as the club look to strengthen their playing staff after their disappointing end to the season
Alexander Kacaniklic is confident that next season holds much promise for Fulham, despite a disappointing end to the season which saw the Cottagers lose five out of their last six games.

Fulham ended up finishing a disappointing 12th despite winning their last game of the season away at Swansea Ctiy 3-0 as their dire form almost threatened to suck the club into the relegation zone.

However Kacaniklic, 21, who scored four goals in 20 Premier League appearances for the West London club holds high aspirations for the club.

“At times I thought we could go on and finish in a very good position, but for whatever reason, it wasn’t to be. It was a disappointing way to end the season as, traditionally; we’re a side that finishes campaigns strongly," he told Fulham’s official website.

“Overall, we did alright, but we can’t deny that with the players we have in the team that we should’ve done better, But football is a difficult and unpredictable game – and sometimes it doesn’t always work out like that.

Kacaniklic is currently with the Sweden national team for this month's World Cup qualifiers added: “The summer break is important as we have to keep fit, and pre-season will be the chance to work on a few things in preparation for the new season.

"It’s an opportunity to move on and look towards a new challenge and enjoy a better campaign.

“The summer is an exciting time, we will see players coming in and it will be interesting to see who the Club signs. Of course, there will be a few players departing too, so it will be sad to see them move on."
