Fulham

Parker focused on results not job talk

11th April 2019, 15:48 by Craig Smithson

Caretaker boss Scott Parker says he's just focused on helping Fulham pick up some good results and isn't worried about his own future.

The Cottagers host Everton on Saturday, their first game since an immediate return to the Championship was confirmed earlier this month.

Parker has been in temporary charge since Claudio Ranieri was dismissed in February and has lost all five of his games at the helm.

Fulham are second bottom of the Premier League, winning just four games, but despite the uncertainty surrounding the club, Parker is not concerned about his role.

He said: "I'm not focusing on me. I just want to improve things. The most important thing for me is sending out a team where people can see organisation and belief, and hopefully that gets us some results.

"I'm in constant discussion with the owner about how we can improve things. I'm looking at the long-term future of the club, whether I'm the manager or not.

"It's down to ownership, who they feel is the best person to lead this football club.

"My main focus right now is that we haven't got a result. I want to send out a team on Saturday that is going to give everything. That is honestly my main focus.

"Ultimately, I'm just focused on the team. It's been a rough road for us, and relegation of course brings uncertainty, not just for players but for staff as well."
