New Hamburg manager Martin Jol has indicated he is ready to give Timothee Atouba a chance to impress despite reports the defender is wanted by Celtic.

Atouba played under Jol at Tottenham but was also sold by the Dutchman to Hamburg in 2005 and Jol admits he has some regrets about letting the Cameroonian leave White Hart Lane.

"I know Atouba from his time with Tottenham. We had another very good left-back in (Erik) Edman and Tim said to me that he wanted to go to Hamburg," Jol said. "When he played a good season here I thought perhaps I had made an error."
