Former Fulham captain Scott Parker has returned to Craven Cottage after being appointed as the club’s first-team coach.

Parker spent four years at the club as a player, making 128 appearances, before retiring from the game in June 2017.

The former England international spent last season with another of his old sides at Tottenham as their U18s coach and club ambassador but has now made the move to join Slavisa Jokanovic’s backroom team ahead of Fulham’s return to the Premier League.

“I’m delighted to join the club this week and look forward to working with Slavisa once again, as well as with the rest of the coaching staff and players,” Parker told www.fulhamfc.com.

“I would like to thank everyone at Tottenham Hotspur for their support and encouragement at the very start of my coaching career with the U18s 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.”

Tottenham confirmed the news on their Twitter page and revealed that Parker’s assistant at Spurs, Matt Wells, will assume coaching responsibilities for the U18s.
