MARTIN JOL admits he will be extra wary of former Fulham star Moussa Dembele when the Belgian returns to Craven Cottage tomorrow.
The striker-turned midfielder was a big favourite with Whites fans, who were hugely disappointed to see him follow Clint Dempsey in moving to Tottenham.
And although Jol values both players and did not want either of them to leave, it is Dembele he fears in particular this weekend.
“Every time when Dembele played, it went well for Spurs, and when he was out injured it was a bit indifferent,” said the Fulham boss.
“But he's back now and they've had two wins on the trot.
“He's got the same role that he had here in midfield. He's got everything. He's good on the ball. He's got strength, he's got pace, and he'll only improve every game.
“He had a little problem with his hip, but if they can get him fit, I think they will have a lot of joy out of him”
Jol added: “I don't take pride in converting him to a midfielder, because it was a logical decision.
“I saw him in Holland when he played on the right as a winger and also as a number nine and there were not a lot of goals in him.
“But you can see that he's got the quality to beat people and has a good range of passes. I only wondered if he was strong enough to play in midfield and in training he did that and I never looked back.”
