Mitrovic forgives Kamara after row

31st December 2018, 02:48 by Michael Holland

Aleksandar Mitrovic has forgiven Fulham team-mate Aboubakar Kamara for almost costing them victory against Huddersfield.

Kamara argued with Mitrovic - the club's designated penalty-taker - and appeared to have cost them a vital victory when Terriers goalkeeper Jonas Lossl saved his kick to keep the match goalless.

Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri was so incensed he is considering dropping Kamara for Tuesday's fixture at Arsenal, but Mitrovic, whose stoppage-time finish ultimately earned the Cottagers the three points, was in a more forgiving mood.

"He's a striker, he's hungry for goals as well, maybe he wanted to score as well and he scored his last penalty," the Serbian said.

"It's normal. He's young; these kind of things can happen. It's normal.

"You need to take care of each other. We had a bit of an argument but in the end he took the ball and I wished him luck and told him to stay focused and score. That's what he'd do as well.

"If he'd scored I'd have celebrated with him, like I scored. The most important thing is we got the three points and everything is behind us."
