Published Add your comment

Fulham manager Martin Jol labelled the FA Cup the "best competition in the world" after watching his side dispatch of Charlton on Saturday.

Clint Dempsey's hat-trick helped a strong-looking Cottagers side avoid a potential third-round upset against the npower League One leaders. The United States international's efforts were complemented by a late Damien Duff goal as Fulham secured a 4-0 victory and safe passage to the fourth round, much to the delight of Jol.

"I wasn't here for the last four or five years but I still think the FA Cup is the best competition in the world," the former Tottenham manager said. "I told the players that and maybe they think differently, but I don't think so."
