FULHAM have appointed former captain Scott Parker as their new first-team coach.

After retiring from playing at the end of Fulham’s 2016/17 campaign, Parker joined Tottenham's Academy as Under-18 coach.

He made a total of 128 appearances for the Cottagers in four seasons, while also completing his Uefa Pro Licence and gaining coaching experience with the club’s Academy.

Parker said: “I'm delighted to join the club this week and look forward to working with Slaviša (Jokanovic) once again, as well as with the rest of the coaching staff and players.

“I would like to thank everyone at Tottenham Hotspur for their support and encouragement at the very start of my coaching career with the Under-18s 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.

“I have first-hand knowledge of the quality and ambition at the Club since I was a player here, with tremendous work carried out by staff within the First Team set up and across all Academy age groups.

“I'm looking forward to getting started right away in preparation for the Premier League campaign.”
