When asked about where he had been wronged, the 38-year-old former England midfielder, Parker, refused to comment.

"At this moment, I'm not thinking of any disappointment," he said.
But Fulham defender Tim Ream has criticized the way they play.
"We did not show solidarity, unity, willingness, flexibility, we presented the parts and parts of the first part and then they are dying and confident.
"What we do is the game is something we do from Monday to Friday," he said.
