OVERVIEW OF: Parker: Fulham Can’t Just Rely On Maja
Fulham manager Scott Parker is determined not to put too much pressure on new boy Scott Parker, reports NK Media
Maja fired a brace in the 2-0 win against Everton at the Goodsion Park on Sunday.
Parker however insists the Whites cannot rely on the Nigeria international alone for goals.
“What a way to start, his Premier League debut for us, to score two goals and for us to win the game, it was pretty special for him really. I am really conscious that I do not want to put a lot on the shoulders of someone so young,” Parker said.
“But I have been very impressed in the short space of time that I have been working with Josh. Hopefully that can continue.
“He has come into a young group, an energetic, upbeat group of players, and he has fitted in very well. He wants to learn, he is a player who wants to get better and that is vitally important when you come into where we are.
“There is a lot on him, like any forward at this club. The hardest job is putting the ball in the net and pressure comes with that, but I am sure he will take that in his stride.”
