The Dutch boss left the English top flight when he was sacked by Tottenham Hotspur in 2007.
However, after spells in charge of Hamburg and Ajax, the 55-year-old is glad to be back in London.
"It's always a great feeling to be back and be in the Premier League and play these sort of games for sell-out crowds," Jol told Sky Sports News.
"We had three good chances but, for a home match, I would like to have more control, more initiative and we have to score first."
Fulham are back in league action when they travel to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday, August 21.
