As reported by Het Nieuwsblad, Club Brugge are considering bringing in former Bournemouth and Fulham manager Scott Parker to replace the departing Carl Hoefkens. Parker began the season with Bournemouth, but was relieved of his duties at the end of August. Hoefkens was let go following a 1-1 draw with OH Leuven at home. Pressure had been mounting on the head coach following an inconsistent domestic season, with his success in the Champions League not being enough to save him.
Former Chelsea and Tottenham midfielder Parker began his managerial career with Fulham in 2019. He was unable to save the side from relegation, but did guide them straight back into the Premier League the following season. He was unable to keep them in the Premier league and was sacked at the end of the 2020/2021 season.
The former England international then took over at Bournemouth, guiding them to promotion in the 2021/2022 season. Parker only managed the club until August when he was replaced by Gary O’Neil.
