Jamie O'Hara has managerial suggestion for Fulham, Scott Parker joins Bournemouth
Scott Parker has left Fulham after more than two seasons in charge with the West London club, and has completed a move to AFC Bournemouth. It leaves recently-relegated Fulham with the task of finding a new manager. Jamie O’Hara has a suggestion, urging Fulham to go for Jonathan Woodgate.
Parker, 40, impressed in his role as Fulham gaffer. Getting the Londoners promoted during his first proper season in charge, he oversaw a play-off final win at Wembley without any fans. An influx of new players eventually proved to be Fulham’s detriment last summer – many loanees coming in.
Fulham failed to stay in the Premier League – and Parker was even linked with Tottenham. They have joined West Brom and Sheffield United in suffering relegation. Now, they are also looking for a new manager after Parker chose to join Bournemouth. O’Hara has suggested Woodgate.
Is Woodgate the man to take Fulham forward – after O’Hara claim?
In his first spell at Middlesbrough, Woodgate really struggled. His side suffered numerous injuries and he was given nothing to work with. Ultimately, despite an up-turn in form here and there, he struggled to cope in what was a near-impossible job to get right.
It was better at Bournemouth. He guided the Cherries into the last six and after a 1-0 win in the first leg of the play-off semi-finals, Woodgate might have been dreaming of becoming a Premier League manager. Now, he remains without a club. Fulham could do a lot worse.
