Jol surprised by Suarez row

A disciplinary hearing into claims that Suarez racially abused

Frenchman Evra during a Premier League fixture at Anfield in

October was opened on Wednesday. But the Football Association

confirmed that there will be no verdict on the charges until

Tuesday at the earliest. The Fulham boss was in charge at Dutch

giants Ajax where the Uruguay international was his main man

upfront. And Jol believes the 24-year-old is a ‘real leader’ and

admits he will be staggered if Suarez is found guilty. He told The

Sun: “If it is true, I am surprised. At Ajax we had players from

all over the world. “He was my captain and his job was to make them

feel comfortable. He was a real leader. “A real leader would never

do things like that.”
