Jol confident of full backing from Fulham owner Khan

Fulham boss Martin Jol is confident he has the support of owner Shahid Khan.

The west London club have a vital fixture against Crystal Palace on Monday but Jol is not concerned by where the club find themselves at the moment nor by any threat to his job.

He said: "I'm in a good position. We are like other clubs. We've got enough points not to worry and of course like other teams you need results and hopefully we'll get some in the next couple of weeks."

The club's owner Shahid Khan will be in London at the end of the month with his NFL team Jacksonville Jaguars, but Jol admits he has not spoken with him about their lack of success, and is not looking for assurances over his job.

"You shouldn't exaggerate. All of the owners, even Mr Al Fayed wasn't on the phone every week or every fortnight," he said.

"The Jaguars will play here in a couple of weeks and I'm invited to go there in his box. I'll see him then."
