VIDEO: Scott Parker interview after play-off final set to “Dry Your Eyes” by The Streets

Musical makeover for earnest speech.



Fulham manager Scott Parker’s interview following Tuesday’s Championship play-off final win over Brentford has been set to “Dry Your Eyes” by The Streets.

The Cottagers earned promotion back to the Premier League thanks to two extra time goals from left-back Joe Bryan.

Scott Parker doesn’t talk like a football manager. It’s hard not to admire that.

Afterwards, Parker spoke earnestly about the highs and lows of professional football and one Twitter user noted the similarity between his intonation and that of Mike Skinner in the hit song.

Mark Pickard duly obliged with the musical mash-up, which at the time of writing has had sixty-nine thousand views on the popular social media platform.
