Scott Parker has been appointed as the new head coach of Belgian side Club Brugge.
Parker has been out of work since leaving Bournemouth earlier this season. The former England international had led Bournemouth to promotion from the Championship but left after a 9-0 loss to Liverpool.
The 42-year-old is now taking over at Brugge.
Parker has a solid record as a manager. Aside from his stint in charge of Bournemouth, he also oversaw promotion from the Championship as Fulham manager in 2019-20, winning the play-offs.
He replaces Carl Hoefkens, who took over in the summer. Hoefkens led Brugge to the knockout stages of the Champions League for the first time in the modern era of the competition. However, they are struggling domestically, going out of the Belgian Cup and sitting just fourth in the top flight.
Parker, who played for Charlton, Chelsea, Newcastle, West Ham, Tottenham and Fulham, will be tasked with driving his team up the table over the rest of the season.
