Parker joins Fulham coaching staff

2018-07-05 12:59

Cape Town - Former Fulham captain Scott Parker has sealed his return to the club, having been appointed as the Cottagers' first team coach.

Parker, who played 128 times for Fulham and also represented Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, called time on his playing career in June 2017.

He spent last season at Tottenham, working as an U18 coach and a club ambassador, but has now joined Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic's backroom staff.

"I'm delighted to join the club this week and look forward to working with Slavisa once again, as well as with the rest of the coaching staff and players," Parker told Fulham's website.

"I would like to thank everyone at Tottenham Hotspur for their support and encouragement at the very start of my coaching career with the U18s throughout last season, in particular John McDermott for his guidance and ongoing support. I'm looking forward now to the next step up, coaching the first team at Fulham."

The 37-year-old brings plenty of experience to Craven Cottage ahead of their first season back in the Premier League since relegation in 2014.

Parker earned 18 caps for England, even captaining the side in a friendly against the Netherlands in 2012, having controversially been given the armband ahead of then Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard by caretaker manager Stuart Pearce.
