Fulham coach Slavisa Jokanovic believes it is good news for football that Scott Parker will remain in the game.

The former England midfielder, who captained his country on February 29 2012 against Holland, hung up his boots earlier this week.

Although the Whites had been in talks with Parker about a coaching role, the midfielder has opted to return to Tottenham as part of their U18 staff.

Jokanovic, though, was quick to praise the 36-year-old, who he worked with for the last 18 months of his career.

The Fulham boss wrote on Twitter: “It was a pleasure to work with you, Scott. It's good news for football that you'll remain in the game. I wish you all the very best.”

Parker professed himself delighted to be back working at the north London club, who will be moving to Wembley while their new stadium is being finished.

He said: “I’m delighted to be back at Tottenham and look forward to immersing myself in the job.

“Obviously it wasn’t an easy decision to call time on my playing career though I’m looking forward to this new chapter and am grateful to Spurs for handing me this opportunity at such an exciting time in the club’s history.

“It is a great honour to represent the club both as a coach and ambassador.”
