Fulham coach says he would get the best out of Berbatov

Rene Meulensteen, the Fulham head coach, thinks that he could help uncover the best in failing Fulham player Dimitar Berbatov, who has managed to score just 1 goal in ten Premier League matches for the struggling Cottagers.

JOL WANTS POINTS

Fulham manager Martin Jol has revealed that he is determined to end the poor record that his team have at the start of the season. After a mediocre campaign last time around, Fulham were expected to kick on after the arrival of players like Darren Bent.

NEW OWNERS

They have signed some low-key players, but Jol has said that the club needs to bring in two more in order to have a squad capable of finishing in the top 10.

He is also looking to spend money in the summer in order to make the squad stronger. For large portions of the season, Fulham relied heavily upon striker Dimitar Berbatov to get them out of trouble.

FULHAM SLIP FURTHER

JOL PRAISES STOCKDALE

JOL BACKS BENITEZ

The Fulham manager Martin Jol has said that he is confident that the Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez will be able to get over the abuse he gets from Chelsea fans once he starts winning football matches.

Benitez received the kind of entry no other manager has received after the Chelsea fans booed him extremely when he was introduced as the new Chelsea manager prior to the match against Manchester City. Chelsea ended the match 0-0 after an encounter that saw the club rarely threaten goal. Benitez will now be taking charge in the second home match against Fulham.
