Jol wants focus on Fulham not Henry


Martin Jol maintains Fulham must not let the possibility of Thierry Henry sitting on the Arsenal bench distract them from the job in hand at Craven Cottage this evening.

The former Gunners captain could make a dramatic return to the Premier League should clearance come through ratifying his loan move from Major League Soccer club New York Red Bulls, but - no matter what squad Arsene Wenger is able to call upon - Cottagers boss Jol wants his men fully focused as they look to take the positives from Saturday's 1-1 draw at Norwich.

"For Arsenal fans it is fantastic. Henry is a legend. He could be sitting behind me and we will have to focus on the game. The last time we did well against Arsenal [drawing 1-1 at Emirates Stadium in November] and hopefully we can do the same," said Fulham manager Jol, who was in charge of the Gunners' arch rivals Tottenham from 2004 to 2007.
