Fulham owner Shahid Khan has backed current boss Martin Jol to get the club out of trouble, despite the side making a poor start to the season.

The new chief has called for patience with some fans calling for the Dutch coach to be sacked.

The side from Craven Cottage have not got off to the best of starts, clocking up just seven points in as many games in the new Premier League season.

Even Khan has said that it's a "start nobody's happy with" but insists Jol is the man to take the club forward.

"Martin is a very experienced coach", Khan 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".

Jol, the former Tottenham Hotspur and Ajax manager, guided Fulham to 12th last season.

They lie just above the relegation zone in this campaign, sitting in 17th spot, however, grabbed a much needed victory in their last match. A Darren Bent winner was enough to give them a 1-0 home victory over Stoke City.

Khan who also owns the Jacksonville Jaguars in the NFL, insists he will not make any drastic decisions so early into the season.

"Relegation is a horrible thought but you've got to keep in mind it's only seven games." Added Khan.

"You can't jump to conclusions".

Fulham travel to struggling Crystal Palace for their next fixture in a must-win game for both sides.
