When Martin Jol was axed, a great majority of Tottenham fans felt the decision was a mistake and I too was shocked at his harsh treatment at the hands of Daniel Levy. However, things have improved a great deal since Juande Ramos came along to steady the ship, and now BMJ is keen on capturing some White Hart Lane talent to help improve his Hamburg squad.
Hamburg boss Martin Jol is keen on four of his former Tottenham players.
£15m quartet, Younes Kaboul, Paul Stalteri, Teemu Tainio and Kevin-Prince Boateng are all on Jol’s summer shopping list. (various)
Now these are four players I am pretty sure Spurs fans can wave goodbye too without losing too much sleep. Younes Kaboul has shown glimpses of solidity and is probably worth keeping. Boateng hasn’t had much of a look in, Stalteri was never really good enough and the Finn Teemu has shown grit and determination but seems a little out of his depth. Now imagine Jol offered Rafael Van Der Vaart in a swap deal! Now that would surely get a nod of approval from the Spurs support! So Tottenham fans, are any of this quartet worth holding onto?
