Scott Parker’s future at Fulham is appearing increasingly uncertain.
That’s according to a report by TEAMtalk, who claim that the Fulham hierarchy are unsure if the 40-year-old is the man they would like to lead the club in the Championship next season, as they have been left far from happy with Parker’s comments suggesting he felt let down by the club’s transfer business last season.
It is reported that the former Tottenham Hotspur star’s future at Craven Cottage is shrouded in doubt following his remarks, and it does not appear certain that the manager will still be in charge of the club come August.
Considering the job that Parker has done since taking over at Fulham back in February of 2019, guiding a side that had suffered relegation from the Premier League in their 2018/19 campaign immediately back to the top flight in the 2019/20 season, the prospect that the club could be looking to part with the 40-year-old this summer will undoubtedly come as gutting news for fans.
Despite Parker being unable to steer his side to Premier League survival this season, the fact that the young manager stuck to his ideals and footballing philosophies – notably playing out from the back and keeping possession of the ball – is an extremely promising feather in his cap, as the longer he stays with the team, the more his players will understand how they should be playing the game, bringing a greater chance of success.
Furthermore, with Parker having already proved that he is more than capable of guiding Fulham out of the Championship, sacking a manager with a track record of success in the division prior to a campaign in the second tier, just because of some comments about transfer strategy, would appear to be an extremely petty and, quite frankly, idiotic reason to sack the 40-year-old.
However, only time will tell which way the Fulham owners fall on their decision regarding Parker’s position at the club, during which time fans of the club face a rather anxious wait to see whether the 40-year-old will still be in charge at Fulham come next season.
