Bobby Zamora claims 'vast majority' of Fulham players don't get on with Martin Jol
Bobby Zamora has claimed “the vast majority” of Fulham's squad do not get on with Martin Jol, suggesting that was partly behind the exodus of players from the club.
Zamora left Craven Cottage in January to join QPR, one of several departures under Jol in 2012.
The striker, 31, reportedly fell out with his manager over his lack of game time and he has now claimed he was not the only one to have a problem with the former Tottenham boss.
Asked by the Evening Standard whether he felt the trend of high-profile exits was due to an issue in the squad, Zamora said: "Yes. I left because I didn't see eye to eye with Martin Jol.
"I think that is the case with the vast majority of players there now.
"A lot of the lads aren't happy. But that's that. There were a few bits and pieces but we just didn't see eye to eye."
Mousa Dembele, Dickson Etuhu, Andrew Johnson, Danny Murphy and Clint Dempsey were among the players to leave Fulham this summer and Zamora did not say which of them had also fallen out with Jol.
The Cottagers refused to comment on Zamora's claims when contacted by Press Association Sport this afternoon.
But new signing Giorgos Karagounis praised Jol in an interview with the same newspaper, saying: "He is a very experienced coach, who wants to play football the right way."
