Tottenham head coach Martin Jol has insisted that he is looking forward to next season, despite the suspension and probable departure of Frank Arnesen.
Sporting director Arnesen, who brought Jol to the club, was suspended after it was alleged that he was the subject of an illegal approach from Chelsea.
But Jol told Spurs' website: "The news about Frank is a big disappointment.
"But I want to reassure fans there is a lot to anticipate and we already have our plans in place for the season."
Tottenham suspended Arnesen on Saturday and the Dane has told Spurs that he wants to move to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea deny making an illegal approach but, with Arnesen now suspended, he is unlikely to have any future at White Hart Lane.
Jol added: "We finished last season on an optimistic note and I am determined that we stay that way.
"The teamwork here is such a big feature at Spurs and that impressed me from day one.
"We move on and I'm really looking forward to seeing the fans all again at the Lane at the start of the new season."
Jol was made head coach at Spurs following the resignation of former France coach Jacques Santini in November.
Dutchman Jol has a contract with Spurs until the summer of 2007.
