Scott Parker does not agree with Tony Khan’s apology following another poor Fulham performance.

The Championship Play-off final winners have lost their opening three Premier League fixtures of the season – the latest of which coming at home to Aston Villa on Monday.

Following a stream of discontent from fans on social media, director of football and vice chairman Khan said sorry for the recent displays before insisting that he is working on bringing in new defenders.

Parker, who took over at the club ahead of their relegation during the 2018/19 season, has since stated that he doesn’t agree with the apology offered up by his colleague on social media.

Khan used his Twitter account to say: "I apologise to Fulham FC supporters for our performance tonight.

“We’ve looked to add centre-backs since Wembley, I’m sorry we haven’t yet as 2 got COVID + we lost a Free we thought was close + had another issue with a 4th CB. I promise players in + better efforts from this squad.”

As reported by The Athletic, the head coach has since replied by saying: "It's not something I agree with it.

"It's not something that is helpful. The one thing I'm disappointed with is that he apologised for the performance. The other bits, it is what it is."

Tony, 37, is the son of Pakistani-born American billionaire Shahid Khan, who bought the club from Mohamed Al Fayed in 2013 and has overseen two relegations and two promotions.

The younger of the Khan family juggles his role at Fulham with his position as President and CEO of professional wrestling promotion All Elite Wrestling as well as co-owner of NFL franchise Jacksonville Jaguars.

He went on to say on Monday: “I should + will apologise repeatedly for that performance. I’m sorry everybody.

“We all need to do a better job. Everyone at the club for the past year worked really hard to get the team up, & now we need to work significantly harder to stay up. I promise better efforts than today.”

Parker, who spent time as a coach at Tottenham before returning to Fulham, added of the poor start to the season: "We've lost three football matches at this present moment in time.

“I understand where the narrative is, where the noise is. Me sitting in my position, I need to keep that level.

“The way we played last night, we played well. We controlled large parts of the game.

“Of course, I'm not silly enough to understand that areas in our games are costing us. But there are some areas which are pleasing. Errors are costing us matches, but we need to keep improving."
