Jol: Spurs deserve Champions League spot
Martin Jol would take no pleasure from ruining Spurs' Champions League ambitions if his Fulham side win at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
Jol knows more than most about how desperate Spurs are to join Europe's elite having been set the target of a top-four finish during his last full season in charge. Spurs fell agonisingly short, losing to West Ham on the final weekend which allowed Arsenal to leapfrog them and claim the last Champions League place. A Fulham victory would secure a club record Barclays Premier League points tally of 55 and a seventh-placed finish, but Jol admitted it is Spurs who are under all the pressure. Asked how he would feel if Fulham denied Tottenham a place in Europe's top competition, Jol said: "Bad. I feel Spurs need to play in the Champions League. "You can't blame me for wanting the three points to get to 55 points. There is no pressure on us. We are in a fine position. We wanted to finish in the top 10. "They are a very good footballing team and there is a lot to play for for them. They will be emotional."
