Peterborough United Director of Football Barry Fry believes Fulham failed to back Scott Parker last summer amid reports that he could leave the club.
It is the second time in three seasons that Fulham have been relegated after wildly differing spends.
Is Scott Parker the right man to manage Fulham?
Prior to the 2018/19 season, the club spent over £104m on new players, per Transfermarkt, but finished 19th with 26 points; prior to 2020/21, they spent just £33.5m and finished 18th with 28 points.
Speaking exclusively to This Is Futbol, Fry said: “I don’t think Fulham backed Scott when they got promotion this time last year, they didn’t back him at all in the transfer market, in my opinion.”
