Tottenham's Bent slams "ridiculous, absurd" Jol doubts

"It's absolutely ridiculous that he's under pressure," said the 23-year-old. "He has got top-five finishes in the last two seasons.

"He's worked wonders so people talking about him getting the sack is absurd.

"The lads believe in him, everyone around the club loves him - you could hear the fans reaction on Saturday and how much they admire him.

"He knows he's not going anywhere. He has made a big impact on me already. He's the one that got me from Charlton. He's going to have a massive influence on my career and I want to repay him with goals."

Bent has been impressed with Jol's man-management, adding: "His coaching methods and the way that he talks to you shows he's a top manager.

"He shows everyone a lot of respect, while others will hammer a player if he's not done something right.

"He just talks to you, gets his point across and everyone knows what he wants."
