Mitrovic lucky to escape FA ban after moment of madness – “This is why Rafa doesn’t trust him!”

Aleksandar Mitrovic scored yet again in Fulham’s latest win last Friday, however the Serbian was VERY lucky to stay on the pitch after striking Millwall’s Tim Cahill – a moment of madness that proves just why Rafa Benitez has struggled to trust the talented striker.

Before we get into it, here’s the incident itself, seeing Mitrovic appear to elbow Cahill just moments after the Australian left Fulham’s Ryan Fredericks in a heap:

Now, Mitrovic’s form since joining Fulham has been nothing short of sensational, with 11 goals in his last 12 goals for the Cottagers, but this is the last thing Benitez wants to see. It’s idiotic – and could have easily ruled him out of Fulham’s crucial end to the season.

It’s regularly been suggested that the Spaniard struggles to trust the 23-year-old, and moments of utter madness like this will only make him think he hasn’t learnt his lesson.

The FA have actually looked at Mitrovic’s elbow since last week’s game live on Sky, however he’s set to face no punishment (somehow!).

He’s a talented player and has showed just what he’s capable of when you play to his strengths, but things like this could have cost his team massively – as the Chronicle’s Mark Douglas highlights here:

Further proof of why Benitez will be flogging him this summer for me – no matter how good he looks for Fulham..
