Where is Scott Parker now?
A tough-tackling centre midfielder, Scott Parker finally hung up his football boots in 2017 after a 20-year playing career which saw him turn out for six different Premier League teams.
A recipient of the PFA Young Player of the year award in 2003-04 and the Football Writers Award in 2010-11, Parker also won 18 England caps and captained his country in 2012.
Having already planned a career in football coaching for many years before he retired. Parker rejoined his former club Tottenham Hotspur as coach of their academy under 18’s side in June 2017.
He also starting working towards completing his coaching badges during his time at Spurs.
In addition to his coaching work, Parker represented Tottenham Hotspur as a club ambassador.
After a year coaching the young Spurs side, Parker moved onto former club Fulham to work with Slavisa Jokanovic as his first team coach.
Although Jokanovic was relieved of his duties in November 2018 with his team routed to the bottom of the Premier League table, Parker was kept on the staff by new coach Claudio Ranieri.
When Ranieri was sacked by Fulham in February 2019 with the team in 19th place, Parker was appointed as caretaker manager until the end of the season.
Unfortunately despite improved results, Parker was unable to keep his Fulham side from relegation but was appointed permanent manager at the end of the season with the aim of getting the club back into the Premier League.
