Fulham manager Martin Jol heaped praise on Andy Johnson after the striker netted twice in their 2-0 Europa League win over Odense.

The Cottagers remained unbeaten in Group K as Johnson fired a goal in each half in Denmark.

Dutchman Jol revealed afterwards that the club had offered the former England international a two-year extension on his contract.

“I want Andy to be with us and stay here. We have spoken a couple of times in the last couple of weeks,” Jol said.

“He is top scorer in Europe if you count qualification matches too. He was a handful tonight.”

“He hasn’t done it in the league but sometimes you have to give him the opportunities too.”

“We have offered him another two years so there is a lot of confidence in him. Sometimes it’s better to start talking in December or January.”

Johnson, who took his goal tally for the season to nine, is set to get more game time at Craven Cottage, Jol said.

“I’m 100 per cent certain that if I start Andy he won’t let anyone down,” Jol said.

“He is a true professional, he always plays with his heart and you can’t say that of all the pros in football.”
