Jol: Reading's Pogrebnyak wrong to leave Fulham

Fulham boss Martin Jol has had a pop at Reading striker Pavel Pogrebnyak.

The Russian quit Fulham for Reading last summer.

Jol said: "It would be arrogant to say he can't make his own mind up. Whatever reason he had, I respected that. It was quite a difference and we pay good wages.

"I'm a professional, and you always have to look at both sides.

"You cannot say the grass is always greener here. But there is a lot of evidence of players leaving this club having had a better time at Fulham, maybe 80 or 90 per cent of them."
