Scott Parker believes that he left Fulham in a good place last season. Parker left Fulham to join fellow Championship side Bournemouth. He was revealed as the Cherries boss just four hours after his departure from Fulham was announced. Parker joined Fulham as a caretaker in 2019 but was unable to help them from getting relegated. He was given the job on a full-time basis and helped the club back into the Premier League the same season. Unfortunately, Fulham was once again relegated to the Championship last season.
“I had a fantastic time at Fulham, I’m very, very proud to lead the club, I have nothing but admiration.” former Fulham boss Scott Parker said. “What I can say is every single day I went into that football club as a player or as a coach, I literally gave every bit of me to the club to try and be successful.”
“I’d like to think I did that really. I know I leave the football club in a good place. I understand that people may point the finger and say ‘you got relegated last year’, but, like I keep saying, there’s something bigger and there’s something deeper than just winning a league or a relegation really.” he added. “When you’re at a football club, the heart and soul of it is bigger than a win or a loss, so I’d like to think I leave the football club in a good place. I couldn’t tell you what reception I would get, but what I do know is that I’m immensely proud of being the manager there and what I did there.”
Bournemouth missed out on a playoff spot under Jonathan Woodgate while reaching the quarterfinals of the FA Cup. The club chose not to continue with Woodgate for the new season.
