Fulham boss Jol needed local cabbies to get squad together

Fulham boss Martin Jol had to call on local cabbies to get his team together for their draw with Norwich City.

His squad's preparations were hampered by players coming back late from international duty and also a virus.

"Bryan Ruiz only came to us yesterday at the hotel, Stanislav Manolev was not even here, he was in London and had to come up in a cab this morning," Jol said.

"Sascha Riether had to leave [with illness], Chris Baird also had the same problem with a bug, and so we had two players making their debuts."
