Stuart Gray took charge of Fulham’s first day of pre-season training this morning with Scott Parker expected to be confirmed as the new Bournemouth boss this week.

Gray, currently the club’s assistant manager, has experience of being in caretaker charge of Fulham having stepped in following the sacking of Kit Symons to head up first team affairs. He is being assisted by under 23s coaches Colin Omogbehin and Mark Pembridge. He has been Fulham’s number two since February 2019 having been brought back by Parker after serving on Slavisa Jokanovic’s coaching staff until July 2018.

The club released a series of photos of the first day’s work at Motspur Park showing Stefan Johansen, Maxime Le Marchand and Alfie Mawson all back in Fulham training following their loan spells last season.
