Jol willing to consider Dempsey future

Published Add your comment

Martin Jol criticised the Fulham fans who mocked the absent Clint Dempsey during Saturday's 5-0 hammering of Norwich.

The Cottagers coped admirably without him as they ruined Chris Hughton's first league game in charge of Norwich by recording a 5-0 thrashing courtesy of goals from Damien Duff, Steve Sidwell, Alex Kacaniklic and double from debutant Mladen Petric.

The home fans greeted Fulham's fifth strike - a fierce penalty from Sidwell - by chanting 'Are you watching Clint Dempsey?'. But Jol feels the 29-year-old deserves more respect from the fans despite his recent rebellion. "I don't want to hear the fans were chanting against him because he was a terrific player for us," Jol told a press conference.
