Jol wants Cup win to reward fans

Hamburg coach Martin Jol is determined to deliver a major trophy to the club as a thank-you to the supporters.

Currently joint top of the Bundesliga, the German side face Manchester City in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup on Thursday.

Jol said: "This is a big club, a great club. Every game is a sell-out and we take 10,000 to 12,000 fans with us to away matches.

"But Hamburg have not won anything of significance in 20 years. Hopefully we can achieve something."

Hamburg, who came from behind to knock out Galatasary in the last round, are also still involved in the German Cup and Jol said: "If they tell me I can win that, I will take it.

"My chairman wants to win every game but I have to be honest. I said to him a couple of weeks ago, maybe it would be better we went out of the UEFA Cup as we had so many games.

"It is a big burden. But then we had a great win against Galatasary and everything changed."

Jol, who lost his job at Tottenham in October 2007, has indicated he would like to work in England again.

He said: "I want to build a good side at Hamburg and stay here for another one or two seasons.

"I still have my house in England. So if there was a very good opportunity, maybe a club with ambitions of Europe, I would certainly think about it."

Hamburg will again be without a number of key players for this first leg as Bastian Reinhardt, Thimothee Atouba, Romeo Castelen, Maxim Choupo-Moting, Guy Demel and Alex Silva are sidelined through injury.

However Paolo Guerrero (ankle) and Collin Benjamin (thigh) returned to training today after ankle and thigh problems respectively and could be involved against City.

Asked where his priorities lie, Jol said: "I cannot pick teams for games like Aston Villa and Spurs did because we have only 14-15 players to call on.

"We have a bit of an advanatage because we are at home. City may have the quality but we have the spirit."
