Kacaniklic says Fulham players united behind Jol

Fulham winger Alex Kacaniklic says the players are united behind manager Martin Jol.

Jol has been criticised by Fulham fans this season.

Kacaniklic has spoken of the close relationship between Jol and his players and when asked whether the criticism was fair, the midfielder today said: "No, not really.

"It has not been going for us in the League, we have played well but we have not taken the points. We should have beaten West Brom and were really unlucky at Newcastle. Sometimes it is like that.

"The manager is always encouraging us, so we are really happy for him and the team. We are close [with him]. He is always out on the training pitch with us and wants to get involved. He is great.

"Everyone has got their own style but, as a player, you want to be able to speak to the manager and have confidence that you can talk to him."
