Jol keen on securing Spurs post

Martin Jol
Tottenham stand-in manager Martin Jol admitted he wants the post full-time after seeing his charges lose 3-2 at home to Charlton.

"It's a terrific job, everyone would want a job like that," he said.

"The second half, the last 35 minutes, gave us hope. We proved we had character and it could have been a draw at the end.

"In the first half we had a mental problem and eight or nine players looked in shock."

Jol conceded that "shock" was probably a result of Jacques Santini's abrupt departure just 24 hours before the match.

"Yesterday was a bit exciting to say the least. It was a big surprise when he told us what his intentions were," Jol added.

"It looked as if we were still in shock in the first half, it was a bit of a nightmare, but we battled and we came back.

"If we play like this maybe we have a chance," he concluded, with one eye on the forthcoming derby against Arsenal.
