Bobby Zamora has claimed "the vast majority" of Fulham's squad do not get on with Martin Jol, suggesting that was partly behind the exodus of players from the club.

Zamora left Craven Cottage in January to join QPR, one of several departures under Jol in 2012. The 31-year-old striker reportedly fell out with his manager over his lack of game time and believes he was not the only one to have a problem with the former Tottenham boss.

Asked by the Evening Standard whether he felt the trend of high-profile exits was due to an issue in the squad, Zamora said: "Yes. I left because I didn't see eye to eye with Martin Jol. I think that is the case with the vast majority of players there now."

He added: "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."

Mousa Dembele, Dickson Etuhu, Andrew Johnson, Danny Murphy and Clint Dempsey were among the players to leave Fulham this summer and Zamora did not say which of them had also fallen out with Jol.

The Cottagers refused to comment on Zamora's claims when contacted by Press Association Sport on Tuesday afternoon.

However, new signing Giorgos Karagounis praised Jol in an interview with the same newspaper, saying: "He is a very experienced coach, who wants to play football the right way."

Really showing your lack of class Zamora. Jol has more class and talent in his little finger than you have ever had in your entire, mediocre career.

 

Jol is the man - He seems to have gotten Fulham playing well without you Zamora. You are ****

That's why you signed for a lesser club with a worse manager, I hope you enjoy playing in the championship next season, it's where you belong.

We used to sing at Fulham.."If the ball hits his head and it lands in Row Z...It's Zamora".

True to say he had a couple of good seasons at Fulham whilst generally flunking a hatfull of chances but it was a great move flogging him to QPR!

Zamora is not exactly a world class player, more a sunday league player who was so far out of his depth, it's a miracle he didn't drown when playing ror a top manager!
