Taarabt must prove himself, says Jol

12 August 2013 14:46

Fulham manager Martin Jol has challenged Adel Taarabt to demonstrate his quality in the Premier League.

The Moroccan joined Fulham on a season-long loan from neighbours QPR last week, having struggled to perform consistently in their relegation campaign last term.

He was far more effective in the Loftus Road outfit's Championship title-winning season in 2010-11, and Jol wants the 24-year-old to prove that he can do it at the highest level.

"He should not be in the situation he is now," Jol told West London Sport.

"There are a lot of (good) players in this country and Europe who are in that situation and not playing.

"I always say that for us it is an opportunity to take them when they are 'bad'. It doesn’t necessarily mean that they are bad players – we have to try to get the maximum out of them.

"I think he has to prove now again that he can do a very good job. He's 24 now and hopefully he will prove to us and to anybody else that he can do a good job.

"We need creativity and that's why I took him. Adel is someone who can score goals and have five or six assists, I hope, at the start of the season."
