New Fulham boss Arnie: No Tottenham revenge

New Fulham boss Martin Jol insists he holds no grudge against Tottenham.

Jol insisted he harboured no hard feelings towards his old employers at White Hart Lane.

"I've got a very good relationship with [Tottenham chairman] Daniel [Levy]," he said.

"He looked after me, he always did. There's no hard feelings. Of course you'd like to stay - I would like to stay here for four, five years. Hopefully it's realistic.

"I was at Spurs three and a half years so that was probably a record so no hard feelings."

Jol refused to name possible transfer targets but reckons he will need four or five new signings to complement what he feels is already a decent squad.

"It's a good squad good, experienced players with a couple of young exciting players like [Moussa] Dembele who I know very well from Holland," he said.

"Four or five players left the club. We need strength in depth so we probably need a similar number of players - four or five."

Jol also remarked: "Everybody knew I would like to come back. I said that when I left, like Arnold Schwarzenegger I will be back, and I am back."
