Manager Bio

Scott Parker has been Fulham's head coach since May 2019, having previously had a spell as caretaker manager.

Parker enjoyed a successful playing career with six Premier League clubs before going into coaching.

He made his professional debut in 1997 and went on to make 368 PL appearances for Charlton Athletic, Chelsea, Newcastle United, West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham over 15 top-flight seasons.

He won the Football Writers' Player of the Year award while at West Ham in 2010/11, just before joining Spurs, and was voted England's Player of the Year by fans in February 2012.

He finished his career in 2017 at Craven Cottage, taking up a coaching role with Spurs’ Under-18s, before returning to Fulham to join Slavisa Jokanovic’s first-team staff.

When Jokanovic was replaced by Claudio Ranieri in November 2018, Parker was reunited with the man who signed him for Chelsea in 2003.

And when Ranieri departed in February 2019, Parker was installed as caretaker manager.

Parker was unable to prevent the Cottagers from being relegated from the Premier League, but he was named the permanent head coach in May 2019.

He guided Fulham back to the top flight at the first attempt, overseeing a 2-1 victory over Brentford in the Championship playoff final.
