Martin Jol admits he's been amazed at the support he's received from his former Tottenham fans since his dismissal.

He told the Daily Express: "I don't believe many managers, if any, have had such a connection as I have enjoyed with the Spurs fans. Despite all the problems, despite the team not doing so well, in that last game those supporters stood up and chanted my name - I will never forget it.

"I have received 7,000 letters and e-mails and they are still arriving from fans and well-wishers. Why should I leave with any ill-feeling after that?"
