Martin Jol has been given the dreaded vote of confidence by owner Shahid Khan.

Jol has been under pressure at Fulham following a slow start to the season. With just two league wins so far, they are currently in 17th place in the Premier League.

But Khan, bought the club from Mohamed al Fayed during the summer has given his full backing to the dutchman.

He told the Daily Mail: "He's a good guy. We've gotten off to a start nobody's happy with, whether you're a fan or you're Martin.

"We want to do better but I'm not the kind of person who's going to act on impulse.

"You go through life and learn valuable lessons. I want Fulham to be very successful. You can't go out of the frying pan and into the fire. That's the most important thing

Some Fulham fans were calling for Jol to go after their home defeat by Cardiff City. But the Cottagers followed that with a 1-0 win against Stoke at Craven Cottage to ease the pressure on the former Spurs boss.

And Khan, who is believed to be worth over £2.4 billion, says he cannot make any predictions for Fulham's season.

"Relegation is a horrible thought but you've got to keep in mind it's only seven games. You can't jump to conclusions," added Khan.

"You look at the table from Sunderland at the bottom to the point where the congestion that starts at seven points and it is two games, six points. And there are 31 games to play. You can't feel too good and you can't feel too bad."

Khan, who also owns NFL side Jacksonville Jaguars, ordered the removal of a 7ft 6in statue of Michael Jackson outside Craven Cottage that was installed by former owner Fayed two years ago.
