Martin Jol to stay managing Ajax - Fulham to keep searching
English newspapers and bookmakers were making Jol out as Fulham's first choice to replace Roy Hodgson, who has joined Liverpool, but the Dutchman has said he will remain in Amsterdam after talks with the Ajax hierarchy.
"They (Fulham) were interested but in principle I will stay at Ajax," Jol told Amsterdam-based newspaper De Telegraaf.
Jol has had talks with Ajax financial director Jeroen Slop and chief executive Rik van den Boog, and Jol has been reassured he can bring in a cheap options and then spend more if the likes of Gregory van der Wiel and Uruguay striker Luis Suarez leave.
