Jol praises Johnson after victory

Fulham manager Martin Jol has praised Andrew Johnson after the striker bagged a brace in their Europa League victory over Odense on Thursday night.

The former England international scored both goals in a 2-0 win for the Craven Cottage outfit, and the Dutch coach was impressed with his hitman.

“The second goal was unbelievable. The ball was high and he took it on his shoe. It was amazing,” he told reporters after the game.

With the forward’s contract running out, the Cottagers have made it clear that they are keen to extend his current deal, which Jol confirmed once more.

“We have offered him another two years so there is a lot of confidence in him. It’s a good marriage, you know.

“Andy is a good boy and a good worker. He has one year left and hopefully we can change that. If not, it is in his hands.

“He is a team player and will give you his all. He was good for us today and Fulham has been good to him before my time here,” Jol concluded.

Fulham will search for their first league victory of the season on Sunday, as they host London rivals QPR at Craven Cottage.
