Scott Parker has been appointed as the new coach of Club Brugge.
Parker has been out of work since leaving Bournemouth earlier this season. The former England international led Bournemouth to promotion from the Championship but left after losing 9-0 to Liverpool.
The 42-year-old takes over for Brugge.
Parker has a solid record as a manager. Aside from his time in charge of Bournemouth, he also oversaw promotion from the Championship as Fulham manager in 2019-20, winning the play-offs.
He replaces Karl Hofkins, who took over in the summer. Hoefkens led Brugge to the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League for the first time in the competition’s modern era. However, they struggle domestically, dropping out of the Belgian Cup and finishing only fourth in the top flight.
Parker, who has played for Charlton, Chelsea, Newcastle, West Ham, Tottenham and Fulham, will be tasked with leading his side through the rest of the season.
