His Fulham exit brought Mitrovic’s eight-year spell in England to an end.

Prior to the move, he reportedly told friends he would never play for the Cottagers again after they rejected a bid from Al-Hilal.

Mitrovic would go on to come off the bench on the opening weekend of the new season in what was his final Fulham appearance.

However, he has now hit out at his former clubs after signing for the four-time Asian Champions League winners.

Speaking to Gazzetta Dello Sport, he explained: “When I received the offer from Al-Hilal, I talked about it with my family, giving up was impossible.

“I have no nostalgia for England, I played many years there.

“I’m happy to have finally arrived at a top club, Al-Hilal is a bit like Real Madrid in Europe.”

Mitrovic first arrived in England in 2015, signing for Newcastle before joining Fulham three years later.


He won promotion to the Premier League with both clubs and twice finished as the Championship’s top scorer during his time at Fulham.

In the top flight, he scored 38 goals in 129 appearances across his spells with both clubs.

Since joining Al-Hilal in August, Mitrovic has scored five goals in four matches, including a hat-trick against Al-Ittihad earlier this month.

The 29-year-old was also on the scoresheet in Friday’s 6-1 thrashing of Al-Riyadh.
