Fulham boss Jol facing PFA showdown over Kasami penalty fine

Fulham boss Martin Jol could face action from the PFA over his penalty fine.

The Sun says Jol faces a dressing-room mutiny over his decision to fine a rookie player £500 for missing a spot-kick..

Pajtim Kasami, 19, was clobbered after fluffing a penalty in a Carling Cup defeat at Chelsea when he was not the designated taker..

Fulham shop steward and defender Brede Hangeland will discuss the row with PFA bigwig Bobby Barnes today..

Barnes said: "I will bring it up with Brede. I've never heard of anything like this before and it could set a dangerous precedent..

"Managers issue instructions before games but players will make decisions during a match..

"What if a player is supposed to stand in the wall at a free-kick and then ducks out of the way of the ball?.

"If the opposition score would he be punished too?"
