Fulham boss Jol risks row leaving Zamora in London

Fulham boss Martin Jol has risked a blow-up with Bobby Zamora after leaving him behind for their Europa League clash at Wisla Krakow.

The England ace clashed with Jol two weeks ago when he was left out of the last Europa League match in Denmark against Odense amid claims of illness.

Instead of making the trip to Krakow, Zamora is back in London along with midfielder Clint Dempsey, even though Fulham have been rocked by an injury to skipper Danny Murphy.

Jol said: "It is a good attitude if they want to play in all the games but I don't think there is any issue.

"Danny Murphy is injured, so he stayed in London and we decided to rest Zamora and Dempsey.

"Murphy picked up a knee injury, it was very painful and we decided not to take a risk."
