Former Spurs boss Martin Jol, who formerly declared himself ready and waiting for any new opportunities in England, has turned his nose up at the opportunity to take the helm at Birmingham. A job so enticing that previous boss Steve Bruce literally leapt into the arms of Wigan and almost certain relegation. Porn Baron and Birmingham co-owner David Sullivan couldn’t even lure Jol with offers of boob-groping and free copies of The Sunday Sport for life. Jol apparently politely told Sullivan that it was too early for him to consider coming back to management. Sullivan said:
“We did speak to Martin Jol over the weekend…Martin thanked us for our interest but said it was too early for him to consider coming back into football such a short time after leaving Spurs.”
So if Birmingham are too small for Jol, what sized club would the Dutchman consider?
