Scott Parker, 41, stated that he was “not surprised” by the defeat and claimed that the club was “ill-equipped at this level.”

Having won their opening game, the 9-0 bashing at the hands of Liverpool was Bournemouth’s third consecutive league loss.

“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,” said owner Maxim Demin.

“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.”

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,” the Bournemouth owner added.

“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.” 

The team will be led temporarily by coach Gary O’Neil, with Tommy Elphick and Shaun Cooper as his assistants.

After leading the team to a second-place finish in the Championship last year, Parker led the club back to the top division.

In their opening game of the new season, Bournemouth defeated Aston Villa 2-0; however, they have since endured three devastating losses against Manchester City, Arsenal, and Liverpool, giving up 16 goals while going scoreless.

Scott Parker is the first Premier League manager to be fired in the 2022-2023 season; his sack came seven months after Watford sacked Claudio Ranieri on January 24, 2022.

Many Bournemouth supporters are dissatisfied with Parker’s early-season departure.

Following Parker’s firing, Gary O’Neill has been named the team’s interim head coach. Shaun Cooper and Tommy Elphick will serve as O’Neill’s assistants.

Prior to traveling to face another recently promoted team, Nottingham Forest, on Saturday, Bournemouth will play Wolves away from home on Wednesday.
