Fulham boss Jol admits Tottenham axe hit him hard

New Fulham boss Martin Jol admits his sacking by Tottenham hit him hard.

But the Dutchman says he quickly moved on from the disappointment.

"I won't lie - I didn't feel great at that moment," Jol recalled.

"But later on, you go to another club. I was in Germany and Hamburg had 55,000 season ticket holders, not 30,000, so that was a big club.

"After a few weeks you go on and you play in the semi-finals in Europe, and I played in the quarter-final with Spurs so it was even better (than that). There was no looking back, or hard feelings."
