Bournemouth AFC have sacked head coach Scott Parker after just four games of the Premier League season.
Parker left Fulham and took charge of Bournemouth 14 months ago, guiding them to promotion to the Premier League behind his former club last season.
Bournemouth were beaten 9-0 by Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, with Parker making no secret of his frustration following the result describing his team as ‘ill-equipped’ to compete at this level.
Parker is the earliest Premier League sacking since Paul Sturrock was dismissed by Southampton in August 2004.
Bournemouth’s next Premier League game will be against Wolves on Wednesday, and then have a run of eight games with fixtures against none of the traditional ‘big six’.
