The Sun says Fulham will not sack Parker despite friction between the manager and the club’s ruling Khan family.
Owner Shahid Khan and his son Tony, the club’s controversial director of football, are fuming with their 40-year-old manager after a late-season capitulation saw them relegated with three games to go.
But former player Parker is under contract for two more years. And he will not be offered a pay-off.
Parker has voiced concerns at the lack of communication with Tony Khan, who also works for his father’s NFL franchise Jacksonville Jaguars and in American wrestling.
But it is understood Khan has no intention of stepping aside from his Fulham duties and believes that the club has backed Parker.
