Jol had Tottenham's Dutch master in his squad for just TWO WEEKS in 2008 before he was sold behind his back.
He said: "I was unfortunate with him.
"When I went to manage Hamburg he was there for probably only two weeks, so that was a bit strange.
"On the Saturday we came to England to play against Real Madrid in the Emirates Tournament and he said 'I'll probably be playing for the opposition tomorrow.'
"I thought he was joking but the next day the club informed me they had sold him to Real Madrid."
