Roberto Di Matteo and Dan Petrescu are in the running to take over from Martin Jol as manager of Fulham, if you are to believe what The Daily Mail newspaper is reporting tonight.
The Mail is the first out of the starting blocks with rumors about Martin Jol’s replacement. Expect the press speculation to mount in the coming days on both TV and in other newspapers. With it being the international break and a slower news cycle, the British tabloids are probably going to be all over this story this week.
So how much truth is there to seeing former Chelsea footballers Di Matteo or Petrescu (manager at Dynamo Moscow) managing the club down the road from the Stamford Bridge side? Absolutely zero. The article mentions no sources, and shines very little light on the situation. However in the world of football rumors, it’s quite possible that someone may have given them a tip about the potential replacements for Jol — if Jol is even sacked.
