Parker: Fulham Can’t Just Rely On Maja

Fulham manager Scott Parker is determined not to put too much pressure on new boy Scott Parker, reports Completesports.com.

Maja fired a brace in the 2-0 win against Everton at the Goodsion Park on Sunday.

Parker however insists the Whites cannot rely on the Nigeria international alone for goals.

“What a way to start, his Premier League debut for us, to score two goals and for us to win the game, it was pretty special for him really. I am really conscious that I do not want to put a lot on the shoulders of someone so young,”Parker said.

“But I have been very impressed in the short space of time that I have been working with Josh. Hopefully that can continue.

“He has come into a young group, an energetic, upbeat group of players, and he has fitted in very well. He wants to learn, he is a player who wants to get better and that is vitally important when you come into where we are.

“There is a lot on him, like any forward at this club. The hardest job is putting the ball in the net and pressure comes with that, but I am sure he will take that in his stride.”

    Na wa ooo. Maja don become big boy overnight. What a difference a day makes!

  • Leganes vs almeria , its 1-1.with sadiq umar scoring on his return from suspension. Looks like a tough game. Still about 30 mins remaining, it can go either way. Lets see how it goes.

      That game was one hell of a game with such a dramatic finish. Both teams needed the match and did go for it…..one would hardly be able to believe its a 2nd division game. I would have preferred Almeria to win so they can go top of the standings….playing in the top division for me is the only thing separating Sadiq from a permanent place in the SE….. But hey…..Omeruo and Leganes also want to return to playing with MEN in the La Liga where MEN play, and it was even more satisfying to see Omeruo get the winning goal in such dramatic fashion…the very last seconds of the match.
