Jol feels Fulham right fit for him

Martin Jol feels Fulham is the right club for him.

The Dutchman came close to taking the job a year ago.

"It is about relationships. They (Fulham) were very good to me last year, this year again," he said.

"I can say Fulham is like Arsenal, but it is isn't. Fulham are Fulham. It's the oldest club in London, that appeals to me, but it is as not as big as Arsenal or Spurs.

"However, Fulham is a great club. That is why I came here."

Jol feels the Premier League is much as he left it.

"Every game is difficult now, that is probably the only change," he said.

"The other teams outside Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and now Manchester City have to try to get into the top six, but I am not sure if Fulham is one of them.

"I always want the best, so I hope that we can do something like this in the next couple of years.

"Seventh was our best position ever, so hopefully we can achieve that sort of thing, to be top 10, and then maybe a bit more."
