Scott Parker has stated that he is fully committed to getting Fulham back into the Premier League amidst speculation linking him with Tottenham.
Parker, who spent two seasons as a player at Tottenham and began his coaching career at the North London club as the Under-18 Development Coach, is one of several candidates who are reported to be on the club’s radar as they continue their search for a new boss.
According to Football.London’s Alasdair Gold, while Parker has admirers at Spurs, the club’s hierarchy view the Fulham boss as someone for the future rather than as being ready to take over at the club right now.
The 40-year-old insisted last week that he is not paying attention to the speculation linking him with Spurs and that he is fully focused on his job at hand at Craven Cottage.
However, Parker was unable to preserve Fulham’s Premier League status, with the Cottagers’ 2-0 loss to Burnley yesterday ending the club’s hopes of avoiding the drop.
Speaking after the game, the Fulham boss reiterated his desire to continue with his project.
“What is key is us, not in the coming days because there’s three games left of the season, but what’s key for me and vitally important for me is that we sit down, analyse and we learn and we’re brave enough to put our hands up.
“Don’t go through the same cycle, at the moment we’re going through the same cycle. We need to break that cycle and work out what we need to do as a football club to move forward.
“I’ll be the first to put my point across, along with all the others to get this club back in the league and stay there.
“That’s my main aim, I don’t want to come into this league for a season and then be relegated, I want to come into this league and stay in this league and move this club forward.”
