Breaking News: Martin Jol Resigns from Spurs


Martin Jol’s career as manager of Tottenham Hotspur has come to an end.

The Dutchman tendered his resignation shortly before the UEFA Cup match against Getafe, a game that was so typical of a Spurs match under Jol. The North London side went one-nil up before losing the match 2-1.

Jol had been in charge at Spurs for almost three years, but his departure comes as no surprise as the club is battling in the relegation zone with just one league win all season, against Derby, and four draws and five defeats.

The question now on everyone’s lips is who will replace Jol. It looks likely that it’ll be Sevilla coach Juande Ramos who is well respected in the game. The question is whether he’ll begin coaching at the beginning of next season or as early as next week.

Up until recently, Jol’s win percentage as manager of Spurs was 45%. The former West Bromwich Albion defender previously managed Dutch teams Roda and Waalwijk before heading to White Hart Lane to manage Tottenham.

What’s your reaction to Jol resigning and how soon will Tottenham be able to turn to it around if Ramos is appointed manager?
