Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has labelled Leeds a “top team” on Twitter ahead of their meeting on Tuesday evening.
The Yorkshire giants are currently preparing to face the south London outfit at Craven Cottage for the midweek Championship encounter.
It is a fixture which sees fourth place take on seventh and will be seen as crucial for both sides achieving a play-off finish when the season reaches it’s end.
Now, Jokanovic has made it no secret that he is an admirer of Leeds as he shared a message to supporters on his personal Twitter account on Monday afternoon which described his opponents as a good team.

When Leeds last met Fulham in August the two sides could not be separated at Elland Road with a stoppage time Chris Wood goal needed to cancel out a Tom Cairney effort in a 1-1 draw.
However, with the season nearing it’s closing stages it is essential that both sides aim for all three points on Tuesday.
The Cottagers still have a game in hand over the Yorkshire club and with eight points currently separating the two teams, a negative result for Leeds could cause serious problems.
Meanwhile, a victory will set Garry Monk’s team well on their way to achieving a top six placing as they look to end their 13-year wait for Premier League football.
