England international Paul Parker joins Prost International as our fifth columnist


Former England international Paul Parker is the fifth and latest columnist to sign up for Prost International.

Paul played 19 times for England, representing them in the 1990 World Cup finals in Italy. He famously provided the assist for Gary Lineker’s goal in the semi-final against Germany.

At club level he won the first ever Premier League, winning two EPL titles overall. With Manchester United, he also won the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Charity Shield. While starring in Sir Alex Ferguson’s side that won the inaugural Premier league, he started 31 EPL games and even scored a goal in a 4-1 win over Spurs.

He won the FA Cup in 1994 at Wembley against Chelsea. Before that, he was a legend in West London, playing 153 games for Fulham and 125 for QPR.

The former defender is still a welcome guest at both clubs, working for their TV stations and broadcasting to their fanbase regularly. He is among a select group who receive a warm welcome at both London rivals.

He has also written a blog on Eurosport.

Given his broadcasting work however, Paul will become Prost International’s first ever vlogger, recording his views directly to camera.

Paul said:

“I am absolutely thrilled to be part of Prost International’s platform, especially to become their first ever vlogger.

“It’s a new journey for both me and them as I’ve never done this before. Learning together is an integral part of any sport and I love a challenge.

“Opinions on TV these days can be a little sanitised but this opportunity gives me the ability to speak directly to fans on matters affecting England and club football in the game I love.

“I’ve met Prost International journalists at a few games and know their dedication to independent coverage.

“Also their commitment to giving opportunities to aspiring journalists is very rare in the industry these days but I was especially impressed with their social commitment and their involvement in the project to give society’s least privileged children a chance to go to University.

“No other site is doing anything close to that, so it feels like I’m working for a site also gives back to the game.”

Paul joins journalist Glenn Moore, cricket writer Annie Chave, talkSPORT’s EFL analyst Kartik Krishnaiyer, and educator/author/journalist Chris Lepkowski in the Prost International columnist stable.

His first vlog will appear on August 15 and look at the prospects for Manchester United, Chelsea, QPR and Fulham.

This week, Glenn Moore looks back on the EUROs and asks is women’s football the new men’s football or the new cricket?
