Fulham boss latest to be linked with Toffees job.
Fulham manager Martin Jol is the latest name to be linked with the soon to be vacant managerial post et Everton, according to The Express.
The 57-year-old has overseen a mid table finish in West London but has apparently impressed Everton chief Bill Kenwright for his ability to identify and sign future stars for a snip of what they will be worth.
Jol was in charge of Spurs when the club signed Gareth Bale for £10 million and was the manager of Ajax when they acquired Luis Suarez for just £4 million. Both players are now worth more than three times those fees, respectively, and Kenwright believes that he will be able to replicate the similar job David Moyes did.
Jol is reported to be frustrated at Fulham’s reluctance to reinvest in the squad despite letting Clint Dempsey and Moussa Dembele leave for healthy fees and there are now question marks over the future of Dimitar Berbatov.
When asked about the link to the Everton position he said: “I wouldn’t be embarrassed to be linked with them. Everton are a good club.”
“If you look when I was at Hamburg and Ajax they had their best win percentages (more than 60 per cent). But I am here at Fulham, have one year left, I’m happy and my family is happy here.”
