Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Scott Parker discusses coaching Josh Onomah and Harry Winks

The former Spurs star worked with the youngsters during his time at White Hart Lane.

This season has seen Tottenham Hotspur's young stars come on leaps and bounds in the first-team as the club remain outsiders for the Premier League title and in both the FA Cup and Europa League.

Now the attention is shifting to some of the other emerging talents coming through the ranks - including Josh Onomah and Harry Winks.

The pair of England youth internationals have both made an impression this season. Winks has played in the Europa League in September whilst Onomah has made 12 appearances this season and is establishing himself as a member of the first-team.

Now a former Tottenham midfielder has been speaking about coaching the talented pair during his time at the club.

Scott Parker was speaking to The Guardian about his future plans for management and discussed what he learned from the experience:

"I do some coaching down at Fulham, and I did a lot at Spurs with [the head of coaching and player development] John McDermott.

"I was coaching people like Josh Onomah and Harry Winks, and John was a massive help for me. I like dealing with people. I like being around people, and that side of me can try to get the best out of others, really.

"As a player and as a captain, I felt I did that. Now, hopefully, one day I’ll give it a go as a coach or a manager. And it’s been interesting to work with the youngsters."

Parker's eventual progression into management would not be a surprise. The midfielder has been a leader wherever he has played, including during his two season stint with Spurs.

Winks and Onomah will certainly hope to emulate his career and Tottenham fans would certainly like to see this pair come on and become regulars at White Hart Lane.
