New, comments

Queens Park Rangers striker claims he left Fulham because he couldn't "see eye-to-eye with Martin Jol."

Queens Park Rangers forward Bobby Zamora has taken an impromptu swing at his former boss at Fulham, Martin Jol, suggesting that many players currently at the club are upset with his management style.

The verbal attack on Jol has come somewhat out of the blue with neither side set to face each other in the near future and without any provocative comments from Jol himself.

Perhaps more notably, though, is the fact that Zamora has lashed out at a time when his own club are struggling for form and are propping up the Premier League table, despite a summer of lavish spending on the likes of Julio Cesar from Inter Milan, Ji-Sung Park of Manchester United and Esteban Granero from Real Madrid.

Zamora left Fulham under unscrupulous circumstances in January after rumours circulated that he and Jol had a training ground bust up. The rift only widened to the point that Zamora was willing to upset fans with a move to local rivals, QPR, in a £5 million move.

He hasn't quite hit form at Loftus Road yet and, clearly, is keen to justify the reasons why he left Craven Cottage for the supposedly more ambitious land of Shepherd's Bush.

"I left because I didn't see eye to eye with Martin Jol," the ex-International told the London Evening Standard.

"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."

Fulham have so far declined to comment on the matter but expect something from Mohammed Al Fayed before long.
