Speaking to Football London, Dimitar Berbatov has given his verdict on the job Scott Parker is doing at Fulham.
The Bulgarian of course played with Parker at Craven Cottage, linking up together in the infamous 2013/14 season.
Parker has been linked with a move to another of Berbatov’s former clubs, with Tottenham reportedly looking at him as a potential Jose Mourinho successor.
Berbatov believes that a move for Parker would be good for Spurs.
“Scott Parker is working at Fulham. I used to play with him. Great appointment in my opinion. Yes Fulham are struggling but he’s doing a great job. Mikel Arteta at Arsenal also, the same example,” Berbatov said.
“It doesn’t have to be the guy who was playing for your club before but in my opinion he has to be young and in full power of his ability and wake up every morning to say ‘let’s go, let’s go, let’s crush it’.”
Berbatov clearly rates what Parker is doing at Fulham, but would he be good enough for Spurs?
Well, the gaffer may soon have two relegation on his CV in three years of management, and while he hasn’t had much to work with this season, the group of players at Fulham are good enough to stay in the Premier League.
In our view, Parker is being a bit overrated by pundits and the media, and that may be down to the way Tony Khan is portrayed and how hard it must be to work under Fulham’s controversial Director of Football.
