Tottenham have confirmed the departure of Martin Jol as manager following the UEFA Cup defeat to Getafe.

Spurs have issued a statement revealing the board asked Jol and assistant Chris Hughton to stand down, although there were reports earlier in the evening that the Dutchman had resigned.

Chairman Daniel Levy said: "For me, Martin and Chris´ departure is regrettable. Our greatest wish was to see results turn in our favour and for there to be no need for change."
