Fulham caretaker manager Scott Parker has insisted that he wants to stand up to the challenge as the new manager at the west London club. The Englishman was appointed as the interim manager for the rest of the season after Claudio Ranieri was sacked from his post as he failed to stabilise the ship for the Cottagers as they head towards relegation this season.
Speaking to the media after his appointment as the new manager, Parker also said that he wants to be the as successful as Manchester United’s interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He said, “I hope I can bring my passion to the team. There is more to the game than passion and drive but that is a key fundamental.”
Parker added, “It has been missing. Certainly at times this year, I feel we have been quite easy to play against. I think that is why the fans have pulled away a little bit. I think at times we have been easy to play against and we need to address that. I had a meeting today and I think the main focus for this team over the course of the last few months and weeks, there has been a disconnect, certainly with the fans, and I tried to explain at times there’s certain things you can’t guarantee as a player.”
