Martin Jol to Stay at Ajax, Won’t Join Fulham in Premier League

Martin Jol said he’ll stay on as coach of Ajax, following speculation he was poised to join Fulham in the English Premier League.

“Ajax let me know they didn’t want me to go, and I don’t think I can bring myself to leave Ajax at this time,” Jol told the Amsterdam club’s website.

There had been media reports that former Tottenham coach Jol was set to join Fulham as successor to Roy Hodgson, who switched to Liverpool.
