Aleksandar Mitrovic: 'I belong in the Premier League'

Mitrovic: 'I belong in the Premier League'

Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic insists that he "has the ability" to become a hit in the Premier League with the side that he joined on a permanent basis this summer.

Aleksandar Mitrovic has said that he is relishing the chance to prove his critics wrong by showing that he can be a hit in the Premier League with Fulham.

The Serbia international dropped down a tier in the second half of last season to fire the Cottagers to promotion, having failed to make the grade in the top flight during his time with Newcastle United.

After scoring 12 goals in 17 Championship outings, Fulham took the decision to purchase the 23-year-old for a fee which could rise to £27m.

Many have questioned Mitrovic's price tag, but the striker insists that he has what it takes to be a Premier League success.

"I want to show everybody that I can play in the best league in the world and score goals. Goals are like an addiction. When you score you want more and more," he told The Telegraph.

"I know it is going to be hard. It is a better league with much more quality. But I know I have the ability, I have the quality. I never say I want to score 15 or 20 goals.

"My target is to play and to help the team, to do my job as best as I can. I say that if the team play well and use me in the right way, the goals will come."

Mitrovic scored 14 goals in 65 league outings during his three years at St James' Park, 10 of which came in the top flight.
