Charlton fans are torn after Scott Parker’s comments ahead of the clash with Fulham

Some Charlton fans on Twitter are torn over their views on academy graduate Scott Parker, as they react to his comments ahead of Fulham’s game against the Addicks.

Parker, now manager of the Cottagers, came through the Charlton academy before leaving for another London side Chelsea in a deal worth £10m back in 2004.

The Charlton boss at the time, Alan Curbishley, expressed his disappointment with Parker’s decision, saying: “The bottom line is that Scott, from the moment he heard Chelsea were interested, has not wanted to play for us and has been totally not focused on what he has been doing.”

A few Charlton fans still hold that ill-feeling towards Parker, with one supporter below saying that the Fulham boss deserves all the stick he gets – it will be interesting to see what reception the former England international gets on Saturday.

Ahead of Saturday’s game, Parker said: “This is a club that was a large part of my life. I hold Charlton in nothing but high regard.”

While a few fans don’t seem to have forgiven Parker, a few others have expressed their love for him below – the 38-year-old really does seem to be a divisive figure amongst the fanbase.

Let’s take a look at some of the Twitter reaction…
