Cottagers won’t be going down under his stewardship.
Fulham manager Martin Jol has insisted that the club will not be relegated under his stewardship despite making a disappointing start to the season, Sky Sports reports.
The Cottagers went down 2-1 to Cardiff at the Weekend to leave them stuck in 18th place in the Premier League table and still waiting for their first home league win since April 1.
The club’s supporters have begun to voice their frustrations but Jol is refusing to panic.
“The devil was playing with us. If you concede goals that late, it’s awful,” said the Dutchman.
“We are very close. It’s not easy to win games.
“I can appreciate fans are getting a bit nervous, or other people. If they invest money in the club, they would like to be in the top 10.
“The only risk I can see is that we will still be near the bottom at the end of the season. I never did that (took part in a relegation battle).
“I feel I can keep them up, but it’s not about me.”
Jol has previously guided the club to ninth and 12th- placed finishes, and is used to received a generous backing from the fans in the stands. However, he has revealed that the jeers from the sidelines have started to get to him.
“That is a problem, it’s not helpful,” he added. “That is what always worries me.
“It’s bad, it’s not good for your health but I’ve got a thick skin.”
