Jol wants more from Richardson

28 December 2012 15:59

Fulham manager Martin Jol has told Kieran Richardson to up his game if he wants to return to the first team.

The former Manchester United wide man was dropped for the Boxing Day draw with Southampton, after featuring in the recent 4-0 loss to Liverpool at Anfield.

And Jol has revealed he expects more from the 28-year-old, who moved to Craven Cottage for two million pounds in August.

"Richardson isn't producing what I want him to produce. He's lacking spark, fitness," Jol told reporters.

"I want him to do well and be better than what I've got. He knows and he wants to do better."

Fulham host Swansea City in the English Premier League on Saturday, and the visitors will be without top-scorer Michu due to injury, but manager Michael Laudrup is confident his team can still pose a threat without the in-form Spaniard.

"I think in a few days he could be ready but obviously for tomorrow's game he is ruled out," Laudrup said.

"But I hope with some good work from our physios he can be back on Tuesday (against Aston Villa). If not he will be back for the week after when we have three games in six days.

"To say you don't miss your top scorer would be a lie but you can't count on one player for the whole season without him getting injured or suspended.

"I think he has played 10 or 11 games on four yellow cards. But now he is injured and out of the game tomorrow."
