Houllier linked with Jol's Spurs post

Former Liverpool boss Gerard Houllier is being linked with Martin Jol's job at Tottenham.

After defeat to Arsenal yesterday, the Mail on Sunday says it known that Italy's World Cup-winning coach, Marcello Lippi, would like to manage in the Premier League and Houllier would welcome a return, despite being close to rejoining the French Federation as technical director.

There was sympathy for Jol from his Arsenal counterpart, Arsene Wenger, who celebrated his new three-year contract with a fourth consecutive win.

"I always have sympathy for a manager going through a bad spell," said Wenger. "It happens to everyone. It happened to me. He just needs support."
