Spurs coach Jol rejects PSV approach
tribalfootball.com - March 22, 2006

Tottenham boss Martin Jol has turned down an opportunity to take over from Guus Hiddink at PSV Eindhoven next season.
According to reports in the Netherlands, Jol rejected a recent approach from PSV representatives about succeeding Hiddink, who is expected to be named Russia coach after the World Cup.

Ajax decided against appointing Jol as head coach last year after they interviewed him.

Spurs coach Jol 'not interested' in PSV job

Tottenham head coach Martin Jol has ruled himself out of the running for the PSV Eindhoven job should Guus Hiddink quit in the summer.

The Dutch giants have suggested Hiddink will leave the club at the end of the season and want him to make a decision about his future before next month.

Hiddink, also currently coach of Australia, has been linked with the national team job in Russia and tipped as a possible successor to Sven-Goran Eriksson as England boss after the World Cup finals.

Hiddink has yet to make his intentions clear but, if he opts to leave, there is growing speculation in Holland that Jol will top PSV's shortlist of possible successors.

However, the Spurs coach flatly denied he had any intention of leaving White Hart Lane to go back home.

'Hiddink is still there but it is always the same if someone leaves a club like Ajax, Feyenoord or PSV, they all link coaches with Dutch clubs,' he said.

'Feyenoord is a big club but in Holland they think of Spurs as a big club. Feyenoord have 50,000 fans on average, PSV is the same. They are a Champions League club.

'I think that structurally we can do the same in the next couple of years. It is easier in Holland than over here I promise you.

'I would not be interested in the job. I am focused on this club. This is my first club as a manager and I love this club.

'My plan is to stay here and hopefully improve our football and get the results. Then in the next couple of years we can be as good as the top four clubs in England.

'All the ingredients are there, the organisation is there, the fanbase is there, everybody is waiting for me and the players.'

Jan Timmer, a member of PSV's supervisory board, believes Hiddink will leave PSV at the end of the season because of the increasing speculation in Holland.

Timmer will now have to look elsewhere for a replacement as Jol is adamant he will not walk out on Spurs.

'I don't know it officially yet, but everything points in the direction that Guus Hiddink will leave PSV,' Timmer told De Telegraaf.

'If you line up all the speculation, and reports in the newspapers, then you will have to be a bad reader to conclude something else.

'And also the body language of Hiddink does indicate it. But the only one who can really tell is Hiddink himself.

'I find it disturbing how it has all gone. In my opinion, a decision-forming process doesn't have to be realised in this way.

'I totally don't agree with the way things are going and I have also said that to Hiddink.'

Meanwhile, Jol also confirmed for the first time that Spurs did not bid for Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse last January, and they will not be bidding for him in the summer.

Cisse's agent insisted earlier this week that Spurs had contacted him with a view to signing his client on the last day of the winter transfer window.

But Jol dismissed his claims and added there was no truth in speculation linking Spurs with Manchester United's unsettled Dutch striker Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Jol did admit that Cisse may have been on his list of targets but contact with the Merseysiders or his agent was never made. 'There is no truth in either,' said Jol. 'I can be honest about it. Everybody knows we were looking to get someone in on loan last January.

'Of course all the names were there, we have lists. Somebody will have mentioned him. But nothing come of all the other players on the list and I made a decision we would be fine with Mido, Robbie Keane and Jermain Defoe. It has turned out to be fine.

'But as for Cisse for next season - there is no truth in it.'

Tottenham boss Jol in Newcastle frame
tribalfootball.com - April 12, 2006

Tottenham coach Martin Jol is being linked with the Newcastle United post.

The Journal says reports in Holland last night claimed that Spurs are bracing themselves for an official approach from United chairman Freddie Shepherd, who is understood to have earmarked the Dutchman as an attractive alternative to Martin O'Neill.

Although Jol is reported to be far from content with certain aspects of his relationship with the White Hart Lane board, Tottenham officials are confident that he will still be in charge at the start of next season, and any approaches look certain to be turned down.

Jol's countryman Guus Hiddink - linked with the Newcastle and England posts - has announced he will take over as Russia coach after the World Cup.
