Robinson blasts Spurs board over Jol treatment

Paul Robinson has blasted Tottenham's board over their treatment of manager Martin Jol.

The England keeper became the first player to break ranks in a week when manager Jol's job came under serious threat.

Robinson said: "I'm very disappointed with what's been happening at the club.

"To see how far MJ has taken the club and the strides he has taken, to then go behind his back to seek other options is very disappointing because the manager has got the full support of the players.

"It's very difficult for him because of what he has done. We are 100 per cent behind and we all hope he stays as long as possible. It's known throughout the club how the players feel.

'To question somebody's job after three games of the season is ridiculous, especially after what the man has done for the past two years.

"We've started the season better than Manchester United, we are above them in the League. Nobody is questioning Sir Alex Ferguson, so why should our manager be questioned?

"We have a large squad of players and not all of them are playing. It's very difficult to keep everyone happy but the majority of us are behind the manager. It's difficult not be unsettled (by this). We see the TV and papers like everyone and it's disappointing when you see how settled we have been for the past three seasons."
