Scott Parker has suffered relegation both times he has managed Fulham in the Premier League but Marcus Bent, who played for 12 different clubs during his career, has exclusively told Football FanCast, that Parker would love to be offered the Tottenham Hotspur job.
Daniel Levy is still on the hunt for Spurs’ next manager and the likes of Parker and Graham Potter have been linked with getting the job despite having never finished in the top half of the Premier League as a manager.
Would Parker be good for Spurs?
Parker was handed the Fulham job last time they were in the Premier League as relegation loomed large but he did manage to get them up at the first time of asking last season as Fulham won the play-off final against Brentford.
Levy will know he needs to get this manager right and Bent, who spoke exclusively to FFC, has claimed that Parker would love the job but he may not be ready for it:
“I’m not sure if Scott Parker is ready for it, but who am I to say? He’s done really well at Fulham and I think he’d jump at the chance. I haven’t spokn to him about it but I think he would jump at the chance.
“There’s something going on at the club and it has been for years because it’s not stable. There’s going to be quite a few players going this summer and they’re talking about if Kane will stay? It just depends on if they’re going to bring in the right players and manager.”
Ryan Mason has been tasked with getting Tottenham into Europe after taking over from Jose Mourinho and the former Spurs midfielder has won two of his three leagues games as manager.
Spurs fans appear to have had enough of how their club is being run and are planning protests, much like all the teams involved in the failed Super League, and they will be happening on the final home game of the season.
