Adriaanse: Dutch media forced Jol into Fulham move

Co Adriaanse feels Fulham boss Martin Jol was driven out of Holland by the local media.

Adriaanse is now in charge of FC Twente and recently met with up Jol, who endured a difficult time at Ajax.

"An important factor is how coaches are treated in The Netherlands," said Adriaanse. "The coaches I speak to: Martin Jol, Dick Advocaat, Henk ten Cate and Louis van Gaal, they have one thing in common: the way they are treated by the media is what is keeping them from returning to The Netherlands.

"I can see why someone like Jol will not easily return to The Netherlands."
