Martin Jol has told Moussa Dembele that he should be scoring more goals for Fulham.

The Belgian striker only managed three league goals during an injury-ravaged first season at Craven Cottage and Dembele has been encouraged by the new Fulham manager to up his goalscoring return this term.

For me personally, Martin knows me already and he talks to me a lot. He will say, ‘Mousa, you’re a good player and I like you a lot, but goals, goals, goals.’ If I’m on the pitch he will say to me, ‘Mousa, you can shoot from here. Try to do this.’

He [Jol] always gives me advice and I like that he talks to me a lot to help me improve. I want to score a lot more goals now but I’m not a player like Didier Drogba who will score 35 goals in a season.

My aim is to score more and then I’ll be more important to the team. At the end of last season it [scoring] was at the forefront of my mind and I feel like I’m improving. I’m always thinking about scoring in training now.
