Bournemouth sack Scott Parker as head coach after Liverpool thrashing

0

The
Cherries
began
their
first
season
back
in
the
Premier
League
with
a
2-0
opening
day
win
against
Aston
Villa.

Comprehensive
losses
to
Manchester
City,
Arsenal
and
Liverpool
followed,
though,
with
the
9-0
scoreline
at
Anfield
on
Saturday
(August
27)
the
joint-heaviest
defeat
in
the
league’s
history.

Following
that
game,
Parker
said:
“There
is
no
denying
we
are
under-equipped
at
this
level”.

A
statement
on
Bournemouth’s
website
on
Tuesday
read:
“AFC
Bournemouth
can
announce
that
the
club
has
parted
company
with
head
coach
Scott
Parker.

“Gary
O’Neil
will
take
interim
charge
of
the
team,
and
will
be
assisted
by
Shaun
Cooper
and
Tommy
Elphick.”

Bournemouth
co-owner
Maxim
Demin
said
on
Parker’s
departure:
“I
would
like
to
place
on
record
my
gratitude
to
Scott
and
his
team
for
their
efforts
during
their
time
with
us.
Our
promotion
back
to
the
Premier
League
last
season
under
his
tenure
will
always
be
remembered
as
one
of
the
most
successful
seasons
in
our
history.

“However,
in
order
for
us
to
keep
progressing
as
a
team
and
a
club
as
a
whole,
it
is
unconditional
that
we
are
aligned
in
our
strategy
to
run
the
club
sustainably.
We
must
also
show
belief
in
and
respect
for
one
another.
That
is
the
approach
that
has
brought
this
club
so
much
success
in
recent
history,
and
one
that
we
will
not
veer
from
now.

“Our
search
for
a
new
head
coach
will
begin
immediately.”

Parker
left
his
previous
job
at
Fulham
to
take
charge
at
the
Vitality
Stadium
in
July
2021
and
guided
Bournemouth
to
promotion
from
the
Championship
in
his
first
season,
finishing
second
behind
his
former
club.

Despite
the
promising
start
against
Villa,
Bournemouth
lost
their
next
three
league
games
to
City,
Arsenal
and
Liverpool,
conceding
16
times
and
failing
to
score
themselves,
though
did
beat
Norwich
City
on
penalties
in
the
EFL
Cup
second
round
last
week.

Overall,
the
former
Chelsea
and
Tottenham
midfielder
took
charge
of
55
games
at
Bournemouth,
winning
28,
drawing
14
and
losing
13.

Parker
becomes
the
10th
manager
to
either
be
sacked
or
resign
with
four
games
or
fewer
of
a
Premier
League
season
played.
