Former Premier League manager Lawrie Sanchez has exclusively told This Is Futbol that Scott Parker could be a dark horse to become the new Tottenham manager.
Parker is on the verge of completing just his second full season in management at Fulham, although it’s not been a memorable one for the ex-Spurs midfielder, with their Monday night defeat to Burnley confirming their instant return to the Championship.
Would Kane leave Tottenham for Chelsea?
Not in a million years
I can see him in blue
The 40-year-old now has two relegations on his CV, although Fulham were all but down when he was appointed two years ago.
Despite their failure to survive, Parker has produced some impressive work during his time at Craven Cottage, and masterminded the Londoners to surprise wins at Leicester, Everton, and Liverpool.
And whilst Lawrie believes that Parker would want to get Fulham back into the Premier League, says he wouldn’t reject the chance to manage Spurs.
He told This is Futbol:
“That’s a strange one. He will want to stay at Fulham, and after getting them up once will want them up again.
“He was a great player for Tottenham, has Premier League experience, perhaps is prepared to go with the title of head coach to allow Levy to do the wheeling and dealing behind the scenes, which is what he likes to do, and wouldn’t turn down the job.
“That might be a dark horse for Spurs I think, one of their own going back, with a CEO that runs the ship – looks an ideal fit.”
