Martin Jol thanked the Tottenham fans for the reception he received
Fulham manager Martin Jol thanked Tottenham fans for the reception he received at White Hart Lane yesterday.
The Dutchman is a popular figure at Spurs and led the north Londoners to fifth in 2006 and Gareth Bale signed for Tottenham because of the current Fulham boss.
“I know the Spurs fans are great,” the Dutchman said. “I meet them in town and in the city and I feel that it is always good in football to have a connection with your former club.
“I always feel a little awkward - I’m here with my new girl and then I have to be nice to my old missus, and that is a strange feeling.
“I thought that I owed it to them to give them a wave and perhaps our fans won’t like it but it is not easy.”
