The midfielder, on loan from QPR, says the players must look closer to home following the manager's dismissal on Sunday, after a run of five consecutive defeats
Jol was sacked on Sunday following the a 3-0 defeat at West Ham - their fifth Premier League loss in a row – which leaves them 18th, three points from safety.
"What's gone wrong? I don't know," Taarabt told the Fulham Chronicle.
"The manager was a great guy; always positive but at the moment, it's not happening.
"If you don't win four or five or five games, the manager gets the blame - but I think the players should have this blame too.
"If we're not doing what we should on the pitch, then the players should be asked the same questions as he was asked."
Bryan Ruiz was also saddened by Jol’s sacking, especially after his manager backed him after being booed when he was substituted against Manchester United in November.
"I am very grateful to Martin because he was responsible for bringing me to Fulham, I learned a lot from him," said Ruiz.
"He came to my defence. I always tried to do my best to back him." ---------- goal.com
