Itâ€™s not just one legged Beatle haters that are opening a Pandoraâ€™s box of revelations this week. Ex Tottenham manager Martin Jol has fought back at the club that sacked him, saying that superfluous Director of Football Damien Comolli cost him his job.
Apparently Comolli totally ignored Jolâ€™s request for a midfielder and a left winger, and like a drunken husband sent out to do the grocery shopping for the first time, came back with Â£30millions worth of players, and none of them asked for. Comolli bought in Darren Bent, Younes Kaboul, as well as youngsters Kevin Boateng and Adel Taarabt, and Jol said of them :
â€œI felt the squad would be unbalanced with these signings and it proved to be the case. The funny thing is the new manager will probably come to the same conclusion and the club will go out in January and buy the two players I felt we needed.â€
And according to The Sun, those two players were Elano and Martin Petrov â€“ both now plying their trade at Man City.
So would Tottenham still have their cuddly Dutch manager at the helm and two excellent midfielders in the squad if Damien Comolli had actually done what was asked of him?
