Scott Parker admits Fulham need to address their shortcomings after owner Tony Khan apologised to fans in the aftermath of a humbling 3-0 home defeat to Aston Villa. Fulham’s defensive issues were on full show as Tyrone Mings struck just after half-time to seal the three points before the home side had a Bobby Decordova-Reid goal ruled out by VAR. Cottagers owner Khan took to Twitter straight after the full-time whistle to apologise for his team’s display and also promised to bring in reinforcements before the transfer window closes. When asked about Khan’s comments, head coach Parker admitted to the same concerns.
Scott Parker said “I think in terms of defending we weren’t good enough tonight and we’ve not been good enough for the first three games this season. We need to address that, I think we all know we need to address that. It was an area we’ve certainly brought up and it’s an area that everyone at the football club hopefully can see as well to be fair. I thought we played very, very well for large parts, but the first time they came into our box they scored, and the second time they scored another goal and you just can’t give up goals like we have and expect to win games in this division. I think you see that at the other end for them. We got up to their goal pretty well but they defended it.”
