New Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen hopes he didn't 'jinx' sacked manager Martin Jol.

Meulensteen admits he called Jol after replacing his fellow Dutchman yesterday.

“I rang him straightaway. I said to Martin: ‘Listen, I don't know if this is anything to do with me, but in the time I worked 12 years with Manchester United, and for five to six years with Sir Alex Ferguson, I had no problem, but I go to Anzhi and Guus Hiddink departs after two weeks, and Martin does the same.’

“I don’t know if was anything to do with me, but it was definitely not something I was anticipating. We wanted to turn this corner together.”
