Jol admits using Spurs fans to pressure board

Martin Jol has warned Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy he won't be pushed around.

Jol knows he's fighting for his future at White Hart Lane. But, grilled by supporters at a special event held in Enfield last night, the manager told fans he is determined to stay even if it means taking a seat next to them in the stands.

Jol said: "I was very disappointed with what happened but I have moved on. I promise I'm not going anywhere. I have two years left on my contract and I would like to think that I will see those years out.

"I told the chairman [Daniel Levy] that if I'm not sitting in the dug-out I will be sitting in the stands as a fan because that's what I am. He won't get rid of me that easily.

"I used to wave at the fans quite quickly when they sang my name, but now I leave it a while so the board can see and hear it."
