Sky Sports understands that Martin Jol is placing the office desk Mark Hughes’ ego signed in 2010 for sale on craigslist.
“My doctor told me it’s best I not sit down 8 hours a day,” Jol told a source near the giant office desk. “So I’m going to order one of those desks where you stand up instead. I read it’s healthy”
Jol decided the move after recently reading an article in Men’s Health magazine, which cited a study in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise that stated of more than 17,000 men and women over 13 years, those who sit for most of the day were 54% more likely to die of heart attacks.
“Martin realizes he’s not the fittest tool in the shed. So he’s doing everything he can to improve his health,” the source said. “He tried one of those exercise balls the mayor of Portlandia uses, but couldn’t stop bouncing up and down on it.”
Rumors were that Fulham’s management had asked Hughes to take the massive office desk with him when he abruptly departed in 2011, but management found the office trashed with “Ambition” spray-painted on the desk.
Another source told Sky Sports, “Hughes’ is in for a surprise: we’ve been to Loftus Road before. He’ll be lucky to get an office larger than a corner cubicle.”
