Scott Parker has left his role as Tottenham's Under 18s manager to become Fulham's first-team coach ahead of their return to the Premier League.

Parker played at Craven Cottage for four seasons in the twilight of his career, before retiring in June 2017 to take up the role in north London.

A year on, he has left Spurs and returns to his old side Fulham to work alongside Slavisa Jokanovic as his right-hand man.

Speaking following the announcement, Parker said: 'I'm delighted to join the Club this week and look forward to working with Slavisa once again, as well as with the rest of the coaching staff and players.

'I would like to thank everyone at Tottenham Hotspur for their support and encouragement at the very start of my coaching career with the Under-18s throughout last season, in particular John McDermott for his guidance and ongoing support.

I'm looking forward now to the next step up, coaching the First Team at Fulham. I have first-hand knowledge of the quality and ambition at the Club since I was a player here, with tremendous work carried out by staff within the First Team set up and across all Academy age groups.

'I'm looking forward to getting started right away in preparation for the Premier League campaign.'

Parker has close to 600 professional appearances under his belt, and will bring a wealth of experience to the young players at Craven Cottage next season.

The midfielder started his career at Charlton, before moving on to Chelsea, Newcastle, West Ham and Tottenham before arriving at Fulham in 2013.

During his time at Craven Cottage as a player, Parker completed his UEFA badges and coached in the club's academy set-up alongside his playing commitments.
