Scott Parker has been sacked by Bournemouth after just four Premier League matches this season. Parker leaves the Cherries following Saturday’s 9-0 drubbing at Liverpool.
The former Tottenham and West Ham midfielder was understandably despondent after succumbing to Jurgen Klopp’s side in emphatic fashion. And it appears that was the final straw for the Bournemouth chiefs.
Parker lasted 14 months at the Vitality Stadium after being appointed in June 2021. He led Bournemouth to promotion from the Championship in his first season in charge.
However, co-owner Maxim Demin claims the decision was made in order for the club to progress on and off the pitch. He thanked Parker for his efforts in a statement on the club’s website.
Demin said: “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.”
