Ex-Chelsea Star Appointed Onyedika’s New Coach At Club Brugge
Former Chelsea midfielder Scott Parker has been appointed Super Eagles midfielder Raphael Onyedika’s new head coach at Belgian giants Club Brugges.
The club announced Parker as their new coach on Twitter on Saturday.
“Hello Scott Parker!“
“The Englishman has just been appointed as our new head coach.“
Parker, 42, had been out of work since August after he was sacked by Bournemouth following their 9-0 defeat to Liverpool, after which he complained about the club’s transfer policy.
Brugge face Benfica in the Champions League last 16 in February.
It is the first time they have made it to the knockout stage in the competition’s current format.
However, Club Brugges are struggling domestically, sitting 12 points behind Jupiler Pro League leaders Genk in fourth after a 1-1 Boxing Day draw with OH Leuven.
Following that result, the club sacked former Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion midfielder Carl Hoefkens just six months after he stepped up from his role as assistant manager.
Hoefkens had taken over from Alfred Schreuder, who had left to replace Erik ten Hag at Ajax.
