Fulham owner Khan eager to work with Jol

New Fulham owner Shahid Khan insists he's happy with Martin Jol as manager.

Jol has taken his squad to Costa Rica for pre-season training - and Khan will fly to Central America to speak to him.

Khan said: "I have not met him but I will meet him. I'm planning on going to Costa Rica this week.

"This transaction happened in the last day and the team had already left, so I haven't had a chance.

"Everyone speaks very highly of him and his reputation proceeds him. I would just like to understand. He knows a lot more about football than I do. I would just like to understand what the plan is."

Billionaire Khan, a Pakistani-born American, who made his fortune from supplying auto parts, says he "hopes" Jol will start next season in charge.
