Steve Bruce proud to have mended Aston Villa's relationship with fans

Steve Bruce proud to have mended Aston Villa's relationship with fans

But after Fulham's 1-0 victory over Aston Villa at Wembley he can grace the Premier League in a white Fulham shirt next season after all - thanks to the minimum 160 million pounds ($212.91 million) windfall the club can now look forward to.

Fulham are back in the big time after winning a thrilling Sky Bet Championship play-off final against Aston Villa, with Tom Cairney ending their four-year Premier League absence in a pulsating encounter.

In the end, the London outfit managed to see out the rest of the clash to secure their spot in the Premier League.

That figure rises to £280m if the winners survive just one season in the Premier League, according to BBC Sport.

"Yeah, I can understand what he's saying", Davies said. First half we were so disappointing, too deep, too respectful and we didn't do enough with or without the ball, especially with the ball.

Jokanovic said: "That transfer window was successful and gave an important push for the team".

"He [Mitrovic] is a strong man and probably we need to make Terry move a little bit more, to stop him having the opportunity to use all his experience", said Jokanovic, who played with Terry at Chelsea in the early 2000s.

"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".

Fulham took the lead in the 23rd minute when Tom Cairney finished from Ryan Sessegnon's superb assist. Our football will only get us credit this season because it got us promoted. We've got five loan players going and two or three out of contract.

Yet even their American billionaire owner Shadid Khan knows it is the prestige of playing Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool next season that matters far more than the extra cash in his bulging bank account.

For a team that froze on the final day of the regular Championship season, in turn forcing them into the play-offs, they displayed enormous steel, fight, and plenty of personality here.

The nine-year-old was given the chance after his dad Andrew won a competition organised by the club.

Bruce was also critical of his team's poor first-half performance and of the officiating, adamant Ryan Fredericks should have been sent off for a challenge on Grealish who he felt Fulham targeted. He stamped on Jack Grealish, right in front of me.
