Jol shrugs off early season kickoff for Fulham

Fulham boss Martin Jol refused to complain about their new season kickoff last night.

Jol refuses to accept their Europa League qualifier is already won after their 3-0 first-leg victory over NSI Runavik.

Some questioned the logic in starting the competitive season so early, but Jol took a philosophical view of it all.

"Yes [it is early] but on the other hand all the other teams will play their first friendly game soon," he said.

"You have to approach it as a serious game but if you play a friendly game you do that after six or seven days and that's exactly what we did today so I don't think it has a big difference."
