Fulham boss Jol: Al Fayed ideal chairman to work for

Fulham boss Martin Jol is happy to be working for Mohamed Al Fayed.

Jol said that the regime at Craven Cottage under chairman Al Fayed is totally different to the one he worked under at Tottenham.

"He's a very good man for the club, he's an emotional, impulsive man and it's not about budgets. With him it's different," said Jol.

"We have one or two targets and it's like Caesar putting his thumb up or down.

"If he puts his thumb up we can buy the player.

"Daniel was different. We called them Sugar Uncles in Holland. Al Fayed is not a Sugar Uncle.

"They were people who were owning the club and you had to meet with them every week. Al Fayed is different.

"He is not interfering with us."
