JOL WILL STAY

Body: 

There have been several speculation in recent weeks that Fulham may part ways with manager Martin Jol after a poor season. A bad end to the season meant that Fulham were in with the danger of being relegated in the final few weeks of the campaign.

However, the Dutchman has rejected the speculation linking him with a move away from Fulham by saying that he is extremely happy at the club. 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.

The Bulgarian striker responded to the challenge more often than not, but Jol wants to strengthen the squad in order to reduce the strain on the former Manchester United man. Fulham's last match of the season will be against Swansea and they come into this encounter on the back of five consecutive defeats in the league. Despite this, Jol has said that he had agreed to a one-year contract extension with the club and he intends to fulfil it. Even though he wants to spend money, Jol has said that there will not be any over the top spending from Fulham.

"I signed an option and that is a long time ago, ages ago. For me, there is no difference. It is not something from the last 48 hours as [the speculation] happened before. If people make up a little story and I speak about new players coming in, of course you need a little bit of money. They associate us with the chairman and he has to give us the funds, but we are a healthy club. We will try to get some players in so there is no story," said Jol.
