Experienced Dutchman Martin Jol was appointed as Fulham manager in June 2011, seven years after earning his first coaching role with Tottenham Hotspur in the Barclays Premier League.
Jol became assistant manager of Tottenham under Jacques Santini and was promoted to the manager’s position after thirteen matches of the season, when Santini resigned. He had previously enjoyed great success with RKC Waalwijk in his homeland before plying his trade at the top level of English football.
He enjoyed a fine start to his managerial career in the Premier League, steering Spurs from 14th to seventh before his achievements were recognised with the Manager of the Month award for December 2004. Tottenham finished ninth, their highest finish since the 2001/02 campaign.
In the 2005/06 season, Jol almost managed to guide Spurs to their first ever top four finish, which would have earned qualification for the UEFA Champions League, but they were edged by North London rivals Arsenal by just two points on the final day of the campaign. Another impressive fifth place finish followed in 2006/07 before he left London for Bundesliga side Hamburg in 2008.
Jol returned to the Premier League three years later with Fulham, and he comfortably led the Cottagers to ninth position in his first season in charge. In the 2012/13 campaign, the goals of Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov have helped Fulham secure their 13th consecutive season at the top level of English football.
