Germans want former manager to take over from Arnesen.
Bundesliga side Hamburg are hoping to persuade Fulham manager Martin Jol to rejoin them as general manager after they sacked Frank Arnesen, according to the Daily Mail.
The 57-year-old has just completed his second season in charge of The Cottagers but wasn’t able to better the ninth place finish he achieved during his first term in west London and Hamburg are hoping to take advantage of his uncertainty at the club.
Jol managed Hamburg after he left Spurs in 2008 where he guided the club to a fifth place finish in the table as well as leading them to the semi finals of the Uefa Cup and the German League Cup. However, he didn’t stay long to build on that success and at the end of the season he returned to his native country to manage Dutch giants Ajax.
He has been mentioned as a potential replacement for David Moyes at Everton and has expressed his concerns over not being backed by the board at Fulham over matching his ambitions in the upcoming transfer market and Hamburg are hoping to use his uncertainty to their advantage to lure him back to Germany.
Hamburg terminated Arnesen’s contract earlier this week and are also looking at Felix Magath and Ex-Hannover sporting director Joerg Schmadtke as potential replacements.
