He may be 36 now, but Scott Parker’s enthusiasm for football shows no sign of waning.
The midfielder also knows a thing or two about Sunday’s FA Cup opponents having enjoyed a two-year spell at White Hart Lane prior to his move to SW6.
“Like everyone does, I felt a bit hard done by when I came out of the team,” he tells Sunday’s matchday programme. “But I wouldn’t be the player I was today if I wasn’t disappointed to not be playing. All I can do is be patient. If I can help the team off the bench or just around Motspur Park, I’ll do my bit.
“If I get an opportunity to play, whether it be for five minutes, 10 minutes or 90 minutes, I’ll give everything I can.”
