Jol lashes out at Hughes

Fulham manager Martin Jol has hit out at his predecessor Mark Hughes, claiming the new QPR boss never stays in a job for more than two years.

Jol and Hughes have traded barbs in the public arena since the Dutchman took over at Craven Cottage last summer. At the time, Hughes stated the club were not ambitious enough for him to remain as manager. It is a claim Jol evidently rejects.

"It is not always about money if you are talking about ambition," Jol is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail. "We are ambitious, but last time he was here he said maybe Fulham are not.

"Fulham played in a European final and that is not easy to achieve. Of course we have been playing in the Premier League now for years, so it is a different club.

"When I came here I knew Fulham were ambitious, so I never said to the chairman, 'I want this or that'. Our ambition is to be a very good club in the Premier League and hopefully in the next couple of years we can win something."

Hughes recently declared he would be willing to stay on at Rangers should the club be relegated, but Jol remains skeptical.

"He is very brave to say that. If you look at all the clubs he has managed, it has been for two years - at the most," he said.
