Social media reacts: Parker's unveiling


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

As AFC Bournemouth announced the new appointment of Scott Parker as head coach yesterday evening, fans were keen to welcome the former England international to the club. 

The 40-year-old put pen to paper at Vitality Stadium, with five new members of coaching staff joining him down south. 

Parker's managerial experience started at Spurs, learning the ropes with their under-18s squad after retiring from playing in 2017. 

His close links to Fulham were what drew him to Craven Cottage a year later, with him guiding the side back to the Premier League via the play-offs at the end of his first full season in charge. 

Speaking to afcbTV after arriving at Dean Court, Parker admitted: "This is the perfect fit for both parties. 

"My team will be a representation of the fans and the football club. No matter who you support, you want to see your team go out there and leave everything on the pitch. 

"We'll be a dynamic, front-foot team, a team that want to go and win games and put their stamp on football matches." 

However, you were also keen to have your say following Parker's arrival. Here's the best of the reaction from social media: 

Fulham fans were also quick to add their views and wish Parker well.
