New season will begin in the English football and there are already plenty of new faces. In an unexpected turn of events Burnley’s manager Vincent Kompany announced he will be leaving the club. The Manchester City legend was approached by German giants Bayern Munich. Burnley’s new manager will be Scott Parker. Parker will be returning to English football after managing Fulham and Bournemouth before. This will be a great test for the English coach with high expectations and plenty to prove. Parker had his time with club Brugge recently. Parker’s time with club Brugge turned out to be a short one after he managed two wins and two defeats in 10 league matches for the club. After being idle for more than a year he claims he is ready for new challenge.

Parker earned promotion with Fulham via the playoffs in his first season at the club. However this fairytale was cut short after Fulham was again in the danger of relegation. This time Parker had the support and fans from all over the world who claim Fulham was better this time. Fulham’s gameplay was more appreciated compared to their other campaigns in Premier League. Parker is known for trying different formations with his squad but his 4-2-3-1 was the most popular and used one. One of the reasons was due to the stability this formation provides to both attack and defense. Fulham had a very aggressive approach to their defending. Although this worked pretty well to stop attacks and stopping the other team from moving the ball too much. This style of defending also had his problems. One of the biggest problem was giving fouls in dangerous areas or getting booked.

High expectations from Burnley’s new manager

After Parker left Fulham for Bournemouth, Parker introduced a new style of play for the club. Parker was already under immense pressure after replacing Eddie Howe. He introduced a new style of play where the main focus was on holding and keeping the ball. He made the players focus on controlling possession, passing out from defence, and switching play from different wings. His tactics were unhinged but after sometime they proved to be better suited to Premier League fast pace game style. Striker Dominik Solanke enjoyed a breakout season under Parker, after scoring 31 times in all competitions. He also gave five assists and proved to be one of the best players in the Premier League. Parker will try to keep his squad in check for the next season after impressive performance from the squad. Solanke who is linked with Arsenal is also a problem.

“Coming out of the Premier League there is an aim to try to get this team back in the Premier League where I feel I belong, where the players feel they belong and the fans feel where they belong. That’s going to be the aim.”
