Fulham name Jol as boss
MARTIN Jol was today confirmed as Fulham’s new manager.
The 55-year-old former Tottenham boss has agreed an initial two-year contract at Craven Cottage with the option of a further 12 months.
The Dutchman replaces Mark Hughes, who resigned as Fulham manager last Thursday after one season at the helm.
Jol, who was sacked by Spurs in 2007, was linked with the Fulham role last year but Ajax refused to release him from his post as head coach at the Amsterdam ArenA.
He has been out of work since quitting the Dutch club last December and has now spoken of his excitement at returning to the Barclays Premier League.
