Boss Scott Parker Exits Relegated Fulham United – LitKenya



Fulham manager Scott Parker has left the club by mutual consent.

Several of Parker’s backroom staff, including Matt Wells (first-team coach), Rob Burch (goalkeeping coach), Alastair Harris (head of sports science), Jonathan Hill (first-team match analyst) and Charlie Moore (lead physical performance coach) have also left the club.

Parker took caretaker charge in February 2019, with the team in the relegation zone, for the final 10 matches of the 2018/19 English Premier League season.

He was appointed head coach on a permanent basis in May that year and, in his first full season in charge, the club achieved promotion back to the Premier League by defeating Brentford in the Championship play-off Final at Wembley Stadium in August 2020.

However, Fulham was relegated to the English Championship following a 2-0 home defeat to Burnley in May.

“Through promotion and relegation, Scott has always enjoyed my support as our head coach. Scott’s departure does nothing to shake my confidence, however,” Fulham chairman Shahid Khan told the club’s official website.

“We will hire a new head coach, who is capable of achieving our goal of promotion and will be committed to Fulham and its supporters. And we will field a squad that will respond, compete and win. Onward.”

Parker is linked to the Bournemouth job with Jonathan Woodgate’s contract expiring on 30th June.

Bournemouth failed to secure a return to the English Premier League after losing to Brentford in the semi-finals of the play-offs last season.
