Will this be Jol’s last season at Tottenham?

It is widely rumored that Dutch international manager Marco van Basten will leave the post after the Euro 2008 Championships in Austria and Switzerland, the former Ajax and AC Milan striker has so far resisted a new deal. Tottenham manager Martin Jol has been earmarked as the successor.

Jol maintains that he doesn’t want to leave the club until he has achieved something with the club but we all know that a lucrative offer and the positives a national team appointment can offer can sometimes be tempting.

I for one hope he does not go. I think he’s done excellent work at Tottenham and made some excellent signings. While back-to-back fifth place finishes may not be seen as a resounding success, it’s the best performance from a manager in 2 decades, this last season he reached quarter-finals of both the UEFA Cup and FA Cup.

The Dutch FA claims they have already approached Jol about the possibility of taking over. Jol, 51, has three years left on his current contract and has managed at Spurs since 2004 after being given the assistant manager to Jacques Santini who managed Spurs for like a week.

Spurs have spent more than 35m pounds in the transfer market this summer.

According to Dutch friends the Dutch FA have stated that they already have a manager and have no thoughts about what happens next year. They also stated on Dutch radio that they haven't even considered a short list and have approached NO ONE as there is no vacancy. Silly season Chinese whisper made to snare gullible people into publishing. Didn't they do well!!!!!!

Yep, Arsenal is indeed a sick and twisted corrupt evil empire of a club and Wenger while not a child molester, is certainly a lier with no personal dignity. . . but this article is about tottenham.
MJ has to stay. I want him to be the next Bill Nic. The supporters must be patient, the board must reward him and the players must do as they are f$#@*ng told. COYS.

They can't have approached him without Tottenham's permission.

Its good you reported this. I really hope its just speculation though. If Jol does want to take the Dutch National Job I hope the Dutch FA would allow Jol to manage Spurs and the Dutch National Team jointly.

With or without Jol, the Spurs will still miss out on the Champions League and will regret buying Bent for that price. Good news for Spurs is that they will increase the number of gays fans attending their games cause they will enjoy the partnership of Keane and Bent.
