Broken hand will not keep brave Bobby out

Published Add your comment

Fulham manager Martin Jol has played donw Bobby Zamora's latest injury, and believes the England striker will be ready in time for the first game of the Barclays Premier League season against Aston Villa at the weekend.

The forward broke his hand during the Cottagers' Europa League run this summer, but instead of allowing the injury to heal, Zamora has played on this summer, leading to Fabio Capello leaving him out of his latest squad for the now cancelled clash against Netherlands.

Zamora's eagerness to get back somewhere towards his best form comes after breaking his leg early last season, but Jol says he should be available this weekend.

"It is good. It was a disappointment for him to drop out of the squad but Fabio Capello told me as well that he was restricted," said the former Ajax chief.

"He could see that he had a different view but that is all in the business."


Jol has brought in four players since joining Fulham earlier this summer with Csaba Somogyi, John Arne Riise, Marcel Gecov and Pajtim Kasami all arriving at Craven Cottage in the transfer window.

However, Jol is adamant his spending is not over this summer.

"I think we've got a good squad so hopefully we can do the same as what they did before and be in the top ten," he added. "We always like to strengthen the squad so we are looking."
