Parker prepares for the future by taking coaching course at Tottenham
Scott Parker is looking to the end of his playing career by taking his first steps towards his coaching badges and working with some of Tottenham Hotspurs’ youth teams, the Daily Mail has reported.
Parker is currently on the injured list until Christmas, according to Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas, with an Achilles injury, but the England midfielder has led coaching sessions with Tottenham’s youth and reserve teams. The 32-year-old has yet to play for Spurs this season after suffering injury and has two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract with the club, having moved to White Hart Lane from West Ham United last summer.
The former Charlton Athletic, Chelsea and Newcastle United player has not played competitive football since England were eliminated from Euro 2012 on penalties by Italy in June. The Mail suggests Parker sees a long-term future in football as a manager, once his career comes to an end.
