Kieran Richardson backs Martin Jol

Kieran Richardson backs Martin Jol to remain at Fulham and turn their fortunes around.

Fulham midfielder Kieran Richardson has backed Martin Jol as the man to turn their fortunes around.

There had been speculation over the Dutchman's future after a poor start to the season.

Richardson though, who started his career under Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United, believes the players are all behind Jol.

"Martin Jol is a great coach," Richardson told the Daily Express. "Since I have been in the game he is definitely one of the best managers that I've been around. Other players feel the same.

"We would all be upset [if he left]. I don't want to see him get the sack. His credentials are right up there so I don't see the need to get rid of this manager."

Fulham take on Crystal Palace in their next game on Monday.
