Fulham boss regrets hitting out at fans

Fulham manager Martin Jol has admitted he regrets hitting out at supporters who barracked him at the weekend.

Some of the Craven Cottage crowd turned on the Dutchman after his team conceded a stoppage-time equaliser against West Brom.

He responded after the 1-1 draw by describing them as “disappointing” and subsequently suggested their expectations are too high.

“I think it’s better not to talk about it – I did and I shouldn’t have,” Jol conceded.

“The supporters pay us to play football for them. They’ve got an opinion and are entitled to express themselves.

“But to concede in the 93rd minute was very disappointing, not only for them but for me and the club as well.”

He added: “I talked about the fact that expectations can make you very unhappy and they can at any club – even the big clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United.

“Seven new players were not even there last week so we still have to find the balance and it’s not easy. I think there are 10 or 11 other teams who are not settled either.

“But what I mean is as soon as we gel I think we will be fine.”
