Parker backed by Fulham forward

15th April 2019, 19:00 by Gareth Freeman

Ryan Babel has heaped the praise on Scott Parker and says the Fulham caretaker boss is like an "experienced coach".

Parker replaced Claudio Ranieri as Cottagers boss in February for his first spell as a manager.

Babel, who joined Fulham on a short-term deal in January, has been impressed with the 38-year-old and says he has seen no signs of inexperience in Parker's approach.

"I had a feeling he had already done this for years," he told Fulham FC TV.

"Okay, the results were maybe not there but in training sessions, the way he talks to the players, it is like he is an experienced coach."

Fulham secured their first win since Parker took charge with a 2-0 success over Everton at the weekend and Babel hopes they can back that up with a result at Bournemouth on Saturday.

He added: "One game is easy but to keep a consistent performance that is the difficult thing, we have a good week to prepare in training and hopefully we will be ready next week."
