David Wheater says Phil Parkinson is the best manager he has ever had, despite featuring heavily at Premier League level earlier in his career.

Wheater, who has played in three different divisions during his six years at Bolton, has worked under names such as Steve McClaren, Gareth Southgate, Gordon Strachan and Owen Coyle since making his professional debut in 2005.

Parkinson may lack the experience of international or European football, but Wheater defiant in his assessment of the current Wanderers boss, who he feels is bringing out the best in the Trotters' squad.

"Phil Parkinson is the best manager I've played under," Wheater told The Guardian. "He's so good at what he does.

"Sometimes managers are good at one thing and not the best at the other. But he's great at man-management, training, he's a top coach - he brings out the best in all the players."
