Scott Parker is ready and willing to make big changes to his Fulham squad as he seeks an immediate return to the Premier League.
The former midfielder was handed the reins on a permanent basis prior to the end of the Premier League season and he faces a big rebuilding job over the summer.
Parker has made it clear that he will be moving on some of their underperforming, high-paid players and work is already underway as they look for replacements.
The 38-year-old has a “clear idea” of what is required and believes the “standards” within the club must be raised. “This season has given us a clear idea of what needs to be done at the football club,” Parker said. “This club needs a culture and an identity.

We need those foundations for us to be successful. That’s what we’re going to do. There’s a big challenge ahead. “If we drive up standards and build culture, I suspect we’ll have very successful seasons ahead.
“Standards at the football club need to go up and they need to rise across every department. It’s possible to come back up next season. “We know the league we are going into is very difficult.
There are established Premier League teams in it who are struggling in mid-table. “We understand the demands.
But I’ve realised the only way we’ll be successful is by building the foundations and establishing the culture. It’s a big year ahead for us.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
