Jol: Easy decision

Posted on 7 July 2004  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Martin Jol visited Spurs Lodge for a look around on Tuesday afternoon and said the decision to take up his post in the new management structure was not a difficult one.

For the first assistant to Head Coach Jacques Santini it was a return to the English football environment, with the 48-year-old former Dutch international having played for West Brom and Coventry in the early to mid-eighties.

"It is very nice, I have met some people and it is just like all those years ago when I played in England - still the same atmosphere and nice pitches," said the former Head Coach of Dutch outfit RKC Waalwijk. "I am looking forward to starting on Thursday.

"It wasn't a hard decision for me to come, but if many other clubs had asked me to become assistant to the Head Coach I wouldn't have done it having managed and trained in Holland for 15 years.

"Spurs is different. I had a two or three minute talk with my wife and we said we have to do it.

"I was six years at my old club and it was a big challenge. I knew Frank Arnesen - not personally - from PSV Eindhoven and he knew me. He and Jacques Santini have shown a lot of confidence in me and the Premier League is where I wanted to go. An easy decision."
