Slavisa Jokanovic is considering a return to England after finishing the regular Qatar season on a high with Al Gharafa.

The Serbian coach has been linked with Sheffield United but is understood to be weighing up other options as he is out of contract this summer.

Jokanovic saw his Al Gharafa side cap off their Qatar Stars League campaign with a comprehensive 5-1 away success over Umm Salal to climb up from sixth and land a fourth-place finish and a spot in the AFC Champions League qualifying play-offs.

The final-day victory saw the Serbian tactician repeat last season's feat of guiding the team to fourth and a place in continental competition.

Indeed, the Doha-based outfit's stellar performances saw the Serbian nominated in the three-man shortlist for the Coach of the Year award, alongside Xavi Hernandez (Al Sadd) and Uruguayan coach Diego Aguirre (Al-Rayyan), who ultimately scooped the accolade.

In addition to securing this season's top-four finish, Jokanovic steered his men to the QSL Cup semi-finals after running out 4-2 winners over Al Sadd in the last eight.

'It's been a tough season for everyone, not just in Qatar, and we can feel satisfied with how we've ended the season, particularly the way in which the players responded to achieve a comfortable 5-1 win when we really needed the three points to finish the season off in style,' said Jokanovic.
