Fulham players furious with Jol for fining Kasami after missed penalty

Fulham boss Martin Jol is facing a new players' row.

The Sun says he has fined one of his Fulham players £500 for missing a penalty.

Several senior stars are furious after Jol rapped rookie Pajtim Kasami.

The Swiss midfielder, 19, was penalised for taking a spot-kick in Fulham's Carling Cup defeat at Chelsea on September 21 - because Orlando Sa was the designated taker.

Jol has upset his squad by implementing a tough new disciplinary regime with wide-ranging financial punishments for lateness and back-chat.

A Fulham insider said: "Kasami wouldn't have been fined if he'd scored it. Some of the new rules are strange to say the least.

"He is a young kid. He was only trying to do his best for the team and he's ended up being fined 500 quid for it."

Kasami's penalty hit the bar and Chelsea went on to win 4-3 in a shootout after a goalless draw.
