Martin Jol has indicated he would like to work in England again despite his success at Hamburg.

The former Tottenham boss has propelled the German club to joint top of the Bundesliga and has a UEFA Cup quarter-final with Manchester City to look forward to, but admits the prospect of returning to the Premier League is tempting.

He said: "I still have my house in England. So if there was a very good opportunity, maybe a club with ambitions of Europe, I would certainly think about it."

However, he added: "I want to build a good side at Hamburg and stay here for another one or two seasons."

Jol remains proud of the job he did at White Hart Lane and believes Harry Redknapp, who replaced Ramos, can make a difference.

Tottenham now lie 11th in the table and are nine points above the relegation zone with seven games remaining.

Jol said: "It was almost a miracle we finished in the top five two years in a row. We did a good job.

"(Chairman) Daniel Levy wants Champions League football, that is clear.

"Harry knows he has a very good side but I had a very good squad as well.

"If he gets time, Spurs have got the resources and they can build a great team. But getting in the top four is very difficult."
