Former Fulham man lands new move and reunites with familiar face

Latest news regarding this ex-Fulham individual emerges.

Former Fulham boss Scott Parker is the new manager of Club Brugge. The 42-year-old has decided to make the move to Belgium for a new challenge in his career.

He was sacked by AFC Bournemouth earlier this season after their tricky start to the Premier League season and has since been weighing up his options. The Londoner will now be managing in the Belgian Pro League and Champions League.

Parker spent his playing days with the likes of Charlton Athletic, Chelsea, Newcastle United, West Ham, Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham before hanging up his boots back in 2017. He was handed his first managerial role by the latter in 2019 and guided the Cottagers to promotion from the Championship a year later after they beat Brentford in the play-off final at Wembley.

His tenure with the Whites lasted just under two-and-a-half years and he won 35.2% of games in charge before heading out the exit door. Bournemouth came calling and he got the Cherries back in the top flight in the last campaign. However, they decided to cut ties with him in late August.

Parker will now be looking to show what he can do in Europe with Club Brugge. They are currently 4th in the table and are the home to ex-Fulham defender Denis Odoi, who played under him at Craven Cottage. Dedryck Boyata and Simon Mignolet also play their football with the 18-time Belgian champions.
