Fulham skipper Murphy explains reasons for Jol blow-up at Tottenham

Fulham skipper Danny Murphy doesn't expect any problems with new manager Martin Jol.

Murphy revealed the agony behind his rift with the Dutchman during a troubled year at Spurs.

Murphy, 34, made just a handful of starts in a dismal year at White Hart Lane before being flogged to Fulham.

The midfielder said: "My dad had a terminal illness then died during my only full season at Spurs. I was out for two months so you lose fitness.

"Since coming to Fulham, Martin contacted me a couple of times to say 'well done'."
