7th June 2011 - Berko Tau

Martin Jol has been appointed as Fulham's football manager after Mark Hughes left the club last week.

The Dutchman has joined the London team on an initial two-year contract, which includes the option of a one-year extension.

Jol's former teams include Ajax and Tottenham, and he managed Spurs between 2004 and 2007.

Commenting on joining Fulham, he said: "I am very happy to join Fulham Football Club, a wonderful traditional club. It is a club with good, solid foundations and a great fan base."

Jol also said that he is looking forwards to becoming part of the "Fulham family" and thanked the chairman for the trust he has shown in him.

Speculation is still running rife regarding the future of Fulham's ex-manager Mark Hughes, who the press have linked with vacancies at Aston Villa and Chelsea.

However, Hughes' agent Kia Joorabchian has told BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek program that his departure from the London club coincided unfortunately with the two managerial opportunities.
