Jol hits back at Zamora

Fulham manager Martin Jol has hit back at the club's former striker Bobby Zamora for suggesting "the vast majority" of the west London club's squad do not like him.

The 31-year-old was sold to QPR at the end of January's transfer window after a period in which reports frequently suggested he did not get on with the former Tottenham boss. Zamora broke his silence this week and claimed he was not the only one to have a problem with Jol.

"It is probably sour grapes," Jol said when asked about it. "I think nothing is what it seems. Everyone knows me. The players know me so one player will say this, another player will say that."

He added: "It doesn't matter. I don't care. For me, the most important thing is we get the results so you will have to ask the players.

"If they do well and work hard, I try to get a good relationship with them. If not, I don't.

"Insiders here know that this probably started after two weeks of me being here.

"There was a few leaks in the paper and I asked him and he said 'no, it wasn't me'. I knew it was him and his agent 100 per cent.

"He said 'no, it wasn't me, I hate the press'. He hated defence and later said he hated crosses as well and that was the moment I thought 'maybe it is better to sell' and that is what we did."
