Fulham chairman Shahid Khan has promoted Scott Parker from Caretaker Manager to the full-time post of Head Coach.

This comes after Cottagers were relegated to the English Football League (EFL) Championship from the Premier League.

“Scott was brave to accept a very difficult challenge in February when appointed as our Caretaker Manager,” Khan said.

“Since that time, day by day, whether in training or on matchday, we’ve undeniably become a better football club.

Former England and Chelsea star Parker is looking to ensure that Fulham end their disappointing Premier League campaign with a win over Newcastle United on Sunday.
“I’m delighted to be appointed Head Coach of Fulham Football Club and I thank the Chairman for entrusting me with this responsibility, as well as the support and encouragement that both he and Tony Khan have provided me.

“The players, staff and fans have all been fantastic with me since I took temporary charge. We are now all focused on ending this campaign with a positive result on Sunday against Newcastle and look forward to preparations for the new season, which have already begun.”
