Interim Fulham coach Scott Parker insists his team needs to start showing more passion in their final few games of the season.
The Cottagers remain in the relegation zone and Wednesday’s 2-0 defeat at Southampton marked the end of the road for Claudio Ranieri.
Fulham are now 11 points from safety as a result and the club’s fans are expecting relegation even though there are still 10 games to go.
Parker admits his team cannot guarantee any points but they need to start showing a fighting spirit in every game.

He told reporters: “There are certain things as a football player you can’t guarantee, whether that’s (Aleksandar) Mitrovic scoring a goal, whether that’s Calum Chambers making passes successfully, you can’t guarantee that.
“But if there’s one thing you guarantee as a football player, it’s that you leave a passion, you have a desire on the football field, that is undoubtedly seen.
“Of course there’s a bigger picture in the detail of the work and there’s tactics but at this moment in time, I want our fans to look at a team of players at the end of 90 minutes that have literally given everything and if they do that, I know ultimately the result will be a by-product from that.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
