Parker fired by Bournemouth,The 9-0 thumping by Liverpool and covert criticism of his club’s transfer policy were too much for Scott Parker to handle as manager of Bournemouth.

The former England footballer was let go on Tuesday, making him the first Premier League coach to lose his job in August since 2004 (August is usually the start of the season).

Parker managed Bournemouth’s return to the top division for just four games, with the final one being a third straight defeat that tied the Premier League’s 30-year record for the biggest loss.

After the humiliating loss at Anfield, Parker claimed that some of his players “are ill-equipped at this level,” since the squad had just suffered losses of 4-0 at Manchester City and 3-0 to Arsenal at home.

The club’s failure to sign higher-caliber talent during the summer transfer window, which shuts on Thursday, according to Parker, had “a million reasons.” Bournemouth has added three players for free transfers and signed two others for a total of about $27 million after a summer of record expenditure by Premier League teams totaling more than $1.75 billion.

The Bournemouth owner Maxim Demin didn’t mention the Liverpool game in the club’s statement announcing Parker’s resignation, but he did remark, tellingly, that it was “unconditional that we be unified in our vision to manage the club sustainably.”

Demin added, “We must also demonstrate respect for and belief in one another. We won’t stray from the strategy that has helped this club achieve such great success in the recent past.

In the 2021 summer, Bournemouth hired Parker, who led the south coast team to promotion.

With a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa to kick off their league campaign, Bournemouth has already given up 16 goals in three games while failing to score a goal.

Prior to this, Parker led Fulham for two and a half years during which time the team was twice demoted from the league and received one promotion.

Demin stated, “I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Scott and his crew for their efforts throughout their stay with us. “Under his leadership, our promotion back to the Premier League last season will always be recognised as one of our most successful seasons.”

On Wednesday, Bournemouth will welcome Wolverhampton in their return to action. An assistant coach named Gary O’Neil will lead the club temporarily.
