FULHAM boss Scott Parker has emerged as the new favourite to become Tottenham’s next manager.
Parker’s odds have been cut from 14/1 to 7/2 by Betfair.
BETFAIR: BET £5 GET 20*
Parker’s Fulham seem destined to relegated after their spirited performances in recent weeks appear to be too little too late to beat the drop.
But former Spurs star Dimitar Berbatov believes Parker could be the man to guide Tottenham to glory.
He said: “Scott Parker is doing a great job in my opinion, despite the relegation battle Fulham are in.
“I know first-hand how good a job he can do, I feel he can help Spurs and take them to the next step.”
Parker made 50 appearances for Spurs after joining the club in 2011 from West Ham.

Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers is the second favourite at 4/1.
Rodgers, who is on the verge of clinching a top-four finish with the Foxes, says he has no intention of leaving Leicester.
He said: “Tottenham is a great club but I’m very happy here. I want to continue my work here.”
SunSport also understand that landing his signature will cost upwards of £70million given Tottenham would need to offer a four-year contract of £12.5m a year PLUS Leicester’s £20m compensation fee.
Maurizio Sarri was seen as a frontrunner to land the Roma job but after missing out, he is now priced at 14/1 for a Premier League return with Spurs.
The Italian boss’ price has continued to drift after he was initially priced at 9/4 to get the Spurs job with Betfair.
