Martin Jol wants Chris Hughton alongside him at Fulham

Post  1892NUFF on Wed Jun 08, 2011 11:19 am

Martin Jol’s first task as the new manager of Fulham will be to try to persuade Chris Hughton to join the club as his assistant.

Jol signed a two-year deal, with an option for a further 12 months, to take over at Craven Cottage in the early hours of Tuesday morning and wants to bring in Hughton, who successfully worked as his No 2 at Tottenham Hotspur.

However it is understood Hughton first wants to explore any opportunities he has to be a manager himself. He has been strongly linked to the vacant post at Cardiff City and is reluctant to step back into being part of a backroom staff.

It was Jol’s close friendship with Hughton that led to the 55-year-old Dutchman ruling himself out of the running to become Newcastle United’s manager at the end of last year. Hughton was harshly sacked at St James’ Park and has been out of work since.

Jol himself resigned as head coach of Ajax in early December after a series of clashes with the club’s board, and he was at the top of Fulham’s shortlist to succeed Mark Hughes after he quit last week.

Hughes was only appointed last August when Jol was unable to extricate himself from his contract at Ajax after agreeing a three-year deal to take over at Fulham. It had been thought he had a release clause in his contract but, in the end, he did not return to the Premier League at that time.
