“I decided to sign an extension here because the squad was good and the money could be there. But in the end, things have changed.”
“Last year, I decided to stay, under some conditions, but they have changed. I left my job at Valencia because the conditions changed. Now they’ve changed at Liverpool.” Rafa Benitez.
The first credible name through the door is that of one time Premiership supremo, Martin Cornelius Jol. To refer to the guy as the former Spurs manager does him no credit. Since his ‘Night Of The Long Knives’ style exit from White Hart Lane where he achieved two back to back 5th place finishes, he has been a success at both Hamburg and now at Ajax.
In fairness, Big Martin has been a work in process. His win percentage as a manager showing a steady progression. Tottenham 45.27%, Hamburg 60.38 and Ajax 74.47%.
“It is an honour for me to be linked with a move to a top club like Liverpool”. Martin Jol.
Certainly not the world beater that many would want, but it could equally be asked, ‘who the hell is Roy Hodgeson?’
