Spurs boss Jol at loggerheads with Comolli over winger signing

Tottenham boss Martin Jol has rowed consistently with football chief Damien Comolli over the need for a left-sided midfielder.

The Mail on Sunday says Jol wants £7 million from the Spurs board this week to land Portsmouth wing-back Matt Taylor.

Comolli has consistently opposed spending more money on a left-sided player, arguing that signing Gareth Bale in the summer should have been enough.

But after missing out on Morten Gamst Pedersen and Stewart Downing, Jol fears the lack of a left-sided player may jeopardise the club's chances of reaching the Champions League.
