Martin Jol is already a hit with the Fulham squad, with Brede Hangeland insisting the manager has settled in as the Cottagers prepare for their first match in the Europa League tonight.

“Training’s been good, we looked forward to meeting the new manager and his staff so it’s all positive,” Hangeland told the official Fulham website.

“The Manager has made a really positive impression, we’ve done lots of work with the ball and obviously the fitness people have done their work so we’re all looking forward to the first game.

“We’re hoping for a smooth transition, obviously when a new manager comes in there’ll be some adjustments but we’re hoping to keep moving forward as a club and to get stronger as a team. I see no reason why that shouldn’t happen this year.”

Hangeland believes that unity within the team will be key to bettering Fulham’s 8th position finish last season.

“The players know each other really well now, we know our strengths and weaknesses. The new manager is also very much aware of how we have played and how we can improve even more,” Hangeland said.

And the centre-back is completely focused on getting a good start to the Europa League campaign, despite a very early start for the side.

“Obviously this game comes a long time before the start of the season,” Hangeland said.

“But we’ll have to approach this game as professionally as we would any game. We all know where it can end so we just want to get through.”
