Jol hits out at Spurs

Published Add your comment

Martin Jol has blamed Tottenham´s summer transfer policy for the club´s current plight and his own exit from the club.

Jol, replaced by Juande Ramos last week, believes the signings made by Spurs sporting director Damien Comolli were a major factor in the club´s poor form this season, as instead of strengthening the midfield, Spurs bought striker Darren Bent for £16million and recruited youngsters Younes Kaboul, Kevin Prince-Boateng and Adel Taarabt.

Jol told The Sun: "I felt the squad would be unbalanced with these signings and it proved to be the case. The funny thing is the new manager will probably come to the same conclusion and the club will go out in January and buy the two players I felt we needed."
