Martin Jol linked to Newcastle job as he quits as head coach of Ajax

Sean Raymond by Sean Raymond / 06 December 2010, 21:18

The former Tottenham boss, Martin Jol has left his position with Dutch side Ajax following a poor run of form in the Dutch Eredivisie. Jol had joined the four times European Champions in May last year after leaving Hamburg, taking over the job from Marco van Basten who quit the club at the end of the season. Jol had signed an initial 3 year contract with the club.

With Newcastle sacking Chris Hughton yesterday could the vacant Magpies job and a return to the Premier League be the next move for the Dutch manager? The bookmakers Victor Chandler are making him the favourite to be the next Newcastle manager at odds of just 5/6 slashed from that off 10/1 prior to the announcement of his resignation at Ajax.

Whether Jol would take on the role remains to be seen, he does have history with Chris Hughton who was Jol's assistant manager during his time with Spurs, both were dismissed at the same time following a UEFA Cup home defeat in the group stages against Getafe.

Since taking charge of the Amsterdam club Jol took them to second in the Eredivisie last season, beaten to the title by one point by Steve McLaren's FC Twente, they did however win the Dutch Cup.

Out of 51 games played under Jol as manager Ajax have won 39 times, giving him a win % of 76.47, his best ever managerial win stat. However a draw against NEC Nijmegen saw his side slip to 4th in the league and they cannot qualify from the Group Stages of the Champions League. Frank de Boer will now take charge of the squad as caretaker until at least Christmas.
