Bournemouth sack Scott Parker as manager after 9-0 defeat at Liverpool

Scott Parker has been sacked as Bournemouth manager, three days after the team suffered a 9-0 defeat at Liverpool.

Parker led Bournemouth to promotion last season but has been sacked after 14 months as the team have won one of their first four Premier League games. That came on the opening day against Aston Villa. Since then they have also lost 4-0 to Manchester City and 3-0 to Arsenal.

Parker indicated after the game at Anfield that he believed the club had not spent enough this summer to pay £22.6m for two players and make three free transfers. “I’ve been clear about what we could look like this season and I’m sticking with that,” he said. “We have to make a decision and try to help this young group that is sometimes struggling for air. Each of us must make this decision. We’ve been trying to get more quality and there are a million reasons why [it hasn’t happened]”.

Scott Parker’s sacking at Bournemouth is the first in the Premier League since August 2004.

Parker was sacked 25 days into the season, the first since Paul Sturrock and Sir Bobby Robson lost their jobs in successive weeks in 2004-05.

Among managers who were sacked or left by mutual consent, Sturrock’s sacking by Southampton remains the first in a Premier League season. He left on 23 August 2004, just nine days into the campaign and just two days after James Beattie’s stoppage-time penalty had earned Blackburn a 3-2 win. The Saints were relegated at the end of the season.

A week later, on 30 August, Robson was sacked by Newcastle chairman Freddy Shepherd, who had previously sacked Kenny Dalglish after just 12 days of the 1998–99 campaign.

The sackings of Peter Reid at Manchester City (1993-94), Christian Gross at Tottenham (1998-99), Gianluca Vialli at Chelsea (2000-01) and Howard Wilkinson at Leeds (1996-97) also came before the dismissal of Parker by Parker. Bournemouth.

However, the Cherries have acted quicker than any club in the last 18 years, beating Watford, who sacked Javi Gracia after 29 days in 2019-20, and Crystal Palace, who sacked Frank de Boer after 31 days in 2019-20. the 2017-18 campaign.

Bournemouth owner Maxim Demin appeared to react to those comments as part of his statement confirming Parker’s sacking.

“I would like to put on record my thanks to Scott and his team for their efforts during his time with us,” he said. “Our promotion to the Premier League last season under his tenure will always be remembered as one of the most successful seasons in our history.

“However, to continue to progress as a team and as a club as a whole, it is unconditional that we are aligned in our strategy to run the club in a sustainable way. We must also show trust and respect to each other. This is the approach that has brought so much success to this club in recent history, and that we will not deviate from now. Our search for a new head coach will begin immediately.”
