Parker pursues management role

Scott Parker is keen on making the step into management when his playing career comes to an end.

The Tottenham midfielder, 32, believes he has the right skill set to be successful on the touchline having played under a number of different managers during his playing career for club and country.

The former Charlton, Chelsea, Newcastle and West Ham player, who has been recalled to the England squad for the World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro, is already working towards his coaching badges.

"It's what I think I'd be good at," Parker said in an interview with the Sunday Telegraph. "There's a tactical side to it and that's relevant but if you can manage players and how they are and how they feel - I think that's how you get the best out of them and that's why I want to go into management.

"I've seen managers who are brilliant on the training pitch, with their tactics but are not so good at dealing with players and understanding their needs.

"I think my experience with different managers helps and I have a good understanding of what I feel you need to do to become a very good manager and build the best team."
