Fulham snap up Jol

Published Add your comment

Fulham have confirmed Martin Jol as their new manager after the Dutch boss signed a two-year deal at Craven Cottage.

The 55-year-old replaces Mark Hughes, who left the club last week.

The former Tottenham Hotspur manager returns to the Premier League four years after being sacked by the north-London club.


Jol said: "I am very happy to join Fulham. It is a club with good, solid foundations and a great fan base.

"I am looking forward to being part of the Fulham family and thank the chairman for the trust shown in me."

Since leaving White Hart Lane, Jol has had spells at Hamburg and Ajax, where he was sacked as manager in December 2010.

Aston Villa were heavily linked with brining Jol to the club last summer after the resignation of Martin O'Neil, and were tipped to make a move for the him this summer following Gerard Houllier's departure.

He joins a Fulham side who finished eighth in the Barclays Premier League and will play Europa League football next season after qualifying for the competition via the fair-play league.
