Spurs boss Jol defends man-management

Tottenham boss Martin Jol insists there's no problems with his man-management.

The under-fire boss is convinced he can handle big names such as Dimitar Berbatov, Jermain Defoe and Darren Bent - even when stand-in skipper Robbie Keane's recent form means it is difficult to leave the Republic of Ireland striker out.

"It is not easy to have good players and have to tell them they are not playing but I think I am good at this job otherwise I would not be in this industry," said Jol.

"It is more a matter of players having to do better. But I won't blame them if the mentality is good."
