Jol heaps praise on Berbatov

Published Add your comment

Fulham manager Martin Jol praised the all-round influence of star striker Dimitar Berbatov following the Whites' 2-1 victory over Newcastle at Craven Cottage.

Jol's side had not won in seven games but took the lead through a deflected Steve Sidwell effort and secured a much-needed three points when Hugo Rodallega headed home just nine minutes after Hatem Ben Arfa had levelled for the visitors.

Jol said: "We had that spell (of poor results) that started against Sunderland with the red card and two big injuries for us. That was very disappointing for us and then after that we couldn't play Bryan Ruiz - he was out for four weeks for us. I was happy that Berbatov, after talking to him, could fill in that role (behind the striker)."
