Jol admits crunch talks with Spurs chairman

"We were discussing our whole situation and he is very supportive," said Jol. "At this club, everybody is responsible and we are all in the same boat.

"Daniel feels that he is in the same boat and we have meetings every week."

Spurs were expected to challenge for a top-four place after spending more than £40million in the summer but defeats to Sunderland and Everton this week has seen the spotlight fall on Jol in an unwelcome way.

"I hate it at the moment," he admitted. "It is not only about myself because I know we will do better.

"I hate it if people are coming up with all these judgment calls."

However, the Dutchman played down the significance of his meeting with Levy, adding: "It is an important time for us - the transfer window shuts in two weeks' time.

"People didn't see him last week, that was good because people will probably think he is putting pressure on me before the season starts.

"We gave this club 125 points in two seasons so that hasn't been forgotten after two weeks or four days."
