Martin Jol is happy to be back working in the Premier League.

Fulham manager Martin Jol has spoken of his happiness at being back in the Premier League following Fulham's 0-0 draw with Aston Villa at Craven Cottage.

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.
