Tottenham fans take to Twitter to laud Martin Jol after recent comments

Tottenham fans have had it so good in the Mauricio Pochettino years at the club, yet it hasn’t always been this good. The Lilywhites have finished as low as 15th in the Premier League, and only recently have started to reach the top of the game, and the fans believe that change started when Martin Jol came to the club in 2004.

Tottenham fans have been given an exclusive interview with the Dutchman by The Telegraph, and the 63-year-old has nothing but good memories of his time at the club, revealing that he still has a house in Tottenham next to the club’s old Chigwell training ground. It seems that he really does love the club and even claimed to own a Jimmy Greaves’ Spurs shirt from the sixties as he grew up a Spurs fan.

Jol became a lot more than just a Tottenham fan, though, and he can be accredited with starting the revolution at the club that has now seen them rise to become Champions League semi-finalists. During a time when Tottenham were lost in mid-table obscurity, Jol came in and took the Lilywhites to consecutive 5th placed finishes, leading to their rise as a consistent European competitor.

The Lilywhites absolutely love Martin Jol and will always welcome him back to the club with open arms if he’s ever in London.
