Fulham remains signed to Scott Parker as head coach and he is given funds to spend in the transfer window as the club looks to return to the Premier League on the first try.
After a 2-0 home defeat to Burnley, Fulham was relegated for the second time in three years on Monday night.
As every season, the club will be conducting a review to identify areas where the club needs improvement.
A two-year contract with Craven Cottage, Parker led Fulham to promotion from the championship in his first full season at the club and is backed with signings to replicate the success of the 2019-20 season.
Players like Tosin Adarabioyo, Antonee Robinson and Kenny Tete, who signed permanent contracts last summer, will be part of the squad next season, as will the majority of the team that beat Brentford in the championship play-off finals in August Has.
As a result of relegation, income is expected to drop by around £ 55m, but relegation clauses on player salaries and loan players returning to their parent clubs will more than cover that figure.
The costs were reduced after the last season of relegation, so that the club does not have to make layoffs.
The ongoing work on the new Riverside booth is still on the way to be ready for summer 2022 despite relegation from the Premier League.
The club is actively seeking a new scouting director to replace Javier Pereira, who left for a leadership position in China in September.
“Exempt” Parker After Relegation: Time For “Big Decisions”
A “gutted” Parker said Fulham had to make “big decisions” to survive in the Premier League but refused to answer questions about his own future at the club.
Parker has overseen both championship defeats, replacing Claudio Ranieri from Cottagers in the doomed 2018/19 season. After leading his former club back to the Premier League for the first time last August, he fell again briefly in his first full season as a top manager.
Their relegation was confirmed by the 2-0 loss to Burnley on Monday evening. Fulham have once again filled a void in a season in which they have scored just 25 goals in 35 games. Pointing out a familiar feeling as a toothless home attack did insufficient damage to visiting defenses again, Parker said the club needed to figure out how to stay afloat in the Premier League.
“I’m injured, I’m gutted,” he told Sky Sports. “This threatens us, we flirted with it for a long time, there are no words I can say unless I’m disappointed that we weren’t successful this year. Staying in this department was a success for us, we knew that it would always be a challenge, but it is bitterly disappointing not to.
“We are on a roller coaster ride – descent, ascent, descent – now is not the time to talk about it, but we definitely have to make some important decisions, we have to understand what we need to do and where we need to improve. ” and transfers are definitely going to be an area we’re looking at. “
