Former Fulham striker Paul Peschisolido has revealed that manager Scott Parker is “very, very popular” at the West London club
The manager took over near the end of Fulham’s Premier League campaign after Claudio Ranieri was sacked.
Since then, he has guided them to third place in the Championship after 33 games and has given them a strong possibility of earning promotion to the Premier League. Fulham sit third with 13 matches left of the campaign.
It’s set to go right down to the wire with the Cottagers just three points behind second placed Leeds United. Parker’s side play against Derby County on Friday night and will be hoping to bounce back from a 3-0 defeat to relegation-threatened Barnsley.
Peschisolido expressed that Fulham have been very good and shown some consistency this season.
Speaking to Love Sport Radio, Peschisolido said: “I think it has been a very good season, to be third in the table they’ve shown the consistency you need to get themselves challenging for that promotion spot.
“I think he’s done a great job. You know, a lot of people had doubts because he’s new in the job, but what Scott has is a knowledge for the game. He’s played at the highest level and is very, very popular at the football club, even amongst the players which is very important.”

It’s interesting to hear this from an ex-Fulham player, because some supporters are a bit disappointed with some of the losses that have occurred at Craven Cottage this season.
Parker’s side have been defeated by Reading, Hull City and Barnsley in front of their own fans in the current campaign, and with the squad they have should well be higher in the table.
It’s set to be a really interesting final 13 games, and there’s no reason why they can’t get into the automatic promotion spots as they still have both Leeds and West Bromwich Albion still to play.
Parker would make himself a hero if he can guide them back to the Premier League. If, not his job could well be on the line ahead of next season.
