Ajax manager has revealed how Ajax blocked his dream return to England with Fulham. Jol, 54, had been earmarked by the Cottagers as the man to replace new Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson. Despite agreeing terms with chief executive Alistair Mackintosh, the Amsterdam giants refused to let go of their man and discuss compensation.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, the ex-Tottenham Hotspur boss admitted he had craved a return to London but this was blocked by the Ajax hierarchy.
"It was unbelievable [Fulham's interest]. I like Fulham, I like England, I like London," Jol said.
