English Premier League side AFC Bournemouth have sacked their head coach Scott Parker after the latest Premier League 9-0 defeat to Liverpool over the weekend
The club made the announcement on Tuesday morning on its official website stating that Parker will be replaced in the interim by former Bournemouth midfielder, Gary O’Neil.
The 41-year-old is now the first manager to get the boot in the 2022/23 season after losing his last three games of the season at the helm.
The statement which quotes club owner, Maxim Demin, reads, “AFC Bournemouth can announce that the club has parted company with head coach Scott Parker.
Parker’s sacking comes after Bournemouth’s 9-nil thumping against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, having won only the first game of the season against Aston Villa and a Carabao Cup second-round fixture against Norwich on penalties.
The former Fulham captain and coach led The Cherries to promotion to the Premier League after finishing behind his former club in the Championship.
