Fulham winger Kieran Richardson has touted Martin Jol as one of football's great managers and claims he should not be held to blame for the Cottagers' poor start to the season.
– Fulham midfielder Kieran Richardson
He's got great man-management skills, he's a great coach, his understanding of the game is top draw.
Since I've been in the game he's definitely up there as one of the best managers I've been around. He's managed top clubs.
What initially attracted me to Fulham was the manager.I do believe and think all the players believe he is definitely the manager to take us forward.
He's under a little bit of pressure at the moment, but a win on Monday and we're on 10 points and we're mid-table and everyone's silent.
We're the ones out there playing the game.
