Martin Jol and price per head sportsbooks praised Pajtim Kasami on Monday after his amazing volley helped Fulham to a 4-1 victory at Crystal Palace.
After Adrian Mariappa gave the home side the lead at Selhurst Park, pay per head services were impressed to see Kasami hit an exceptional right-footed effort, drawing Fulham level.
Steve Sidwell then hit a very nice volley of his own, putting Fulham ahead at the break, before Dimitar Berbatov and Philippe Senderos rounded off a win in the second half, in what price per head sportsbooks consider to be a remarkable performance.
Jol said he believes that Kasami’s goal could very well be one of the best ones this season in the Premier League, while also saying that it was better than the one made by his countryman Marco van Basten for the Netherlands in the 1988 European Championships’ final – a goal that price per head sportsbooks remember very well.
“(The goal is) probably better than people think because he had to control it with his chest and, with his wrong foot, he hit it in the far corner. It was a good goal from a talented boy,” Jol told Sky Sports.
When he was asked about comparisons with Van Basten’s goal, he said: “It was totally different, you can’t compare the two. This was better.
“To score a goal like that, it could be one of the goals of the season.”
Jol also spoke about the gamble he took in his forward line when playing Berbatov with Darren Bent, with the Bulgarian opening his account in the Premier League for the season.
“Everything seemed to go for us because the first two goals went our way. I think we took a few risks before the game, believe me,” he continued.
“I had to play Berbatov and Bent at the same time. People knew before it would be difficult to play them together but good players can play together.
“We had to work on that and we didn’t have much time. Berbatov was almost victimised but he wants to play up front. We did it before against Cardiff and lost so it was a risk but I knew in my heart it would work.”
Price per head sportsbooks know that the victory ensures the team record back-to-back wins for the first time this season, but Jol rubbished any idea that he was feeling the pressure.

“I love (the pressure) because the boys want to do well for me and the club,” he added.
