Fulham boss Jol explains taking captaincy away from Berbatov

Fulham boss Martin Jol has explained taking the captain's armband away from Dimitar Berbatov for defeat to Swansea City.

Berbatov's confidence has all but gone and Jol admitted as much in explaining his decision to strip him of the captaincy at the weekend in favour of Scott Parker.

Jol said: "I wanted to put the pressure on other people. Berbatov is not very outspoken, he is very quiet. Scotty Parker is more involved in the dressing room. So I thought it would be good to change captains."
