Martin Jol says that he is not worried about reports that he will be sacked as Fulham manager.

Fulham manager Martin Jol has claimed that he is not worried about being sacked at Craven Cottage.

The Dutchman's side are currently 15th in the Premier League following Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Manchester United.

"I don't fear [getting sacked]," Jol told reporters. "Sometimes I worry if the supporters are at my back, but on the other hand I think it's better they are on my back than on my players' backs.

"I know that there are always six or seven clubs in trouble and I said to somebody [on Friday] - 'If you saw Roberto Martinez, he was always in the bottom three of the table, then after games he was always fantastic'.

"So that is where I get my belief from, because I know that we are a better team than at least six or seven other teams and we will pick up points. I think we will be fine in the end."

Jol's side have now lost three in a row.
