The Fulham boss is unhappy with the Clint Dempsey situation
Fulham manager Martin Jol has joined Wigan counterpart Roberto Martinez in attacking the transfer window.
The Latics have been looking set to lose Victor Moses to Chelsea while the Whites have had Clint Dempsey allegedly refuse to play for them.
“We should stop the window when the first game is played then all this nonsense would stop,” the Fulham manager said.
“If you look at the window now with two weeks to go, it’s awful because there are a lot of clubs waiting around until they get the money in (from sales) and if they have got the money then they will come in and of course then you have players with clauses as well, so I think we should do something about it.
“It’s a bit frustrating. I had the same thing happen to me in Germany (with Hamburg).
“Vincent Kompany left and then (Rafael) van der Vaart left in the same week.”
