Scott Parker offers revealing insight into his Fulham team as they chase down Newcastle United
Scott Parker has bullishly backed his young Fulham team to come of age – as they look to catch Newcastle United.
Parker’s third-bottom side are just three points behind Steve Bruce’s team, and the former Newcastle midfielder has talked up his players ahead of Thusrday night’s home game against Tottenham Hotspur.
“I see these players every day – I’m confident in what I see,” said Parker. “I see the attacking players coming in, trying to improve and get better.
“Of course, in match situations, and certainly games, the one thing you can aim at us is we’ve not managed at certain times to kill games off, but it’s a young team. A lot of these players are around the Premier League for the first time, and what I want from my group of players is a real honesty that we keep trying to improve.
“Life tells me, and my experiences tell me, if you keep trying to do that, things change. We have unbelievable quality.”
