Fulham boss Martin Jol refused to complain about their new season kickoff last night.

Jol refuses to accept their Europa League qualifier is already won after their 3-0 first-leg victory over NSI Runavik.

Some questioned the logic in starting the competitive season so early, but Jol took a philosophical view of it all.

"Yes [it is early] but on the other hand all the other teams will play their first friendly game soon," he said.

"You have to approach it as a serious game but if you play a friendly game you do that after six or seven days and that's exactly what we did today so I don't think it has a big difference."
