Fulham boss Jol looking forward to emotional Tottenham clash

Fulham boss Martin Jol is excited to be facing former club Tottenham on Sunday.

Jol admits he will have mixed feelings after being dismissed shortly after a Europa League game, with news of his dismissal being leaked during the match.

"Will it be extra special? Yes," he said. "It was great at Spurs. I was there three years and four months - that was probably a record at the time.

"This will be the first time I have played against them and seen the fans again.

"Am I jealous of their success under Harry Redknapp? Maybe if they had done it straight after I left I would have been.

"Maybe that's a bit harsh but it's been a long time (since I left) and they have improved the squad and spent a lot of money. They have probably got the quality in their needed, and when you have a quality player that stays there, like Luka Modric did, that is important.

"I love it (that they qualified for the Champions League) because I know how much Daniel Levy wants to be in the top four in England, and he always works very hard for that.

"I know a few people on the board, so I am always happy for them."
