Fulham boss Jol: Redknapp has tough job at QPR

Fulham boss Martin Jol feels Harry Redknapp has a tough job on his hands at QPR.

Redknapp has been given the task of staving off relegation at Loftus Road and it's a challenge that Jol is not unfamiliar with, having prospered during a similar situation in his time in the Netherlands.

"I think it's always a tough job," he said when asked about the difficulties of taking over at a struggling side. "At my second club [RKC Waalwijk], they had three points at the end of November and that was the first time in history that a club had that amount of points and still managed to stay in the league.

"The year after, we were fourth with two other clubs, so I think Harry can do a similar job. He's proved in the past that he's a very good manager, a fantastic manager. But it's a big challenge."
