Scott Parker Net Worth: How Much Is Scott Parker Worth? – Scott Parker is a renowned English professi onal football coach who is currently serving as the manager of Club Brugge in Belgium.

He was born on 13th October 1980 in Lambeth, Greater London, and completed his education at Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham College in New Cross.

As a 13-year-old, he appeared in a well-known English advert for McDonald’s, in which he played keepie uppie, during the 1994 FIFA World Cup campaign. Parker is a graduate of The Football Association’s now-defunct national School of Excellence at Lilleshall.

Parker started his professional football career with Charlton Athletic, signing as a trainee and making his first-team debut as a substitute against Bury in the First Division on 23 August 1997. He signed his first professional contract with the club two months later.

Over the next few years, he made only a few sporadic substitute appearances for Charlton, although he was one of the brightest prospects in English football. In October 2000, Charlton, then in the Premier League, loaned Parker to First Division club Norwich City for two months to give the England under-21 international some first-team experience. At Norwich, he scored once against Sheffield Wednesday.

On his return to Charlton, Parker was immediately called into the first team to replace injured captain Mark Kinsella. Parker played so well for Charlton that Kinsella could not regain his place in the starting line-up. Parker soon became the linchpin of Charlton’s midfield, combining tenacious tackling with an ability to carry the ball quickly from defence to attack and play telling passes, creating many chances for his teammates.

Scott Parker, who had been linked with moves away from Charlton for years, left the Valley on January 30, 2004, to join Chelsea for a £10 million fee on a four-and-a-half-year contract. Although Parker was initially signed as cover for Claude Makélélé and Frank Lampard, he was criticized by Alan Curbishley, Charlton manager, for his attitude following news of Chelsea’s interest. Parker’s first-team opportunities were limited during 2004–05 after the summer signings of Arjen Robben and Tiago Mendes. Parker’s first goal for Chelsea was scored in a 2–0 win against Portsmouth at Fratton Park on February 11.

Parker was sold to Newcastle United for a £6.5 million fee in July 2005. He became a regular in the Newcastle first team and was one of the few consistent players at the club during a difficult season in which Newcastle finished in seventh place. Parker was diagnosed with glandular fever in March 2006, which ended his season. In July 2006, he was named Newcastle United’s new captain by manager Glenn Roeder, succeeding the retired Alan Shearer. Parker’s first goal as captain came against Wigan Athletic on August 19, 2006, in a 2–1 win on the first day of the season.

Parker was signed by West Ham United for a £7 million fee in June 2007. In 2008–09, Parker played a major part of West Ham’s season and was voted Hammer of the Year by the club’s supporters. He was one of West Ham’s key players in 2009–10, scoring the winning goal in a vital 3–2 win against Wigan Athletic, which ensured another season of Premier League football for West Ham. In September 2010, Parker signed a new, five-year contract with West Ham, which also made him the highest-paid player in the club’s history.

Parker scored three goals in his first six appearances in 2010–11, and there were calls from England supporters and Avram Grant for the midfielder to be included in England’s squad and feature on a regular basis. He is widely regarded as one of the most consistent English midfielders over the last few years.
