Bournemouth has revealed that they have appointed Scott Parker as their new head coach after he left Fulham. Parker will replace Jonathan Woodgate at the helm whose contract expires at the end of the month. Parker has signed a three-year deal with the club. He leads Fulham back to the Premier League in his first season in charge of the club. At first, he was made the interim manager before sealing the job on a permanent basis.
“I believe this is the perfect fit for both parties,” new Bournemouth manager Scott Parker said. “I’m familiar with Bournemouth because of my relationship with Harry Arter. It’s a football club I know well from watching him over the years. The ethos, the reputation, the journey, and the challenge here are something that’s very exciting for me and my staff. We want to build a team the fans can be proud of and one they feel represents them. We can’t wait to get started.”
Scott Parker has assembled a team of backroom staff before sealing the deal. Matt Wells will be the assistant coach while Rob Burch has been appointed as the goalkeeping coach. Alistar Harris and Charlie Moore will join as the head of performance and physical performance coach respectively. Jonathan hill will serve as the head analyst of the first team.
“It has been a long process but I am delighted to finally get our man.” Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake said. “Scott has always been our number one choice for this role and someone whose coaching career we have taken a keen interest in since his first steps in Tottenham Hotspur’s academy.
