During the 9-0 outburst, Parker expressed frustration with Bournemouth’s activity in the transfer market this summer, insisting his young team are ‘not well equipped’ to face the challenges of the Premier League after achieving promotion last season.

The ex-Fulham boss said there were “a million reasons” after the humiliation at Anfield why the squad had not been strengthened to his liking.

And as his frustration boils, the 41-year-old leaves the Vitality Stadium and becomes the first top manager casualty of the new campaign, having played just four games.

However, Bournemouth owner Maxim Demin said: “I would like to extend my thanks to Scott and his team for their efforts during their time with us.

“Our promotion to the Premier League under his tenure last season will always be remembered as one of the most successful seasons in our history.

“But in order to continue to make progress as a team and as a club, it is unconditional that we are aligned in our strategy to run the club sustainably. We must also show faith in and respect for each other.

“That’s the approach that has brought this club so much success in recent history, and we won’t deviate from that now. Our search for a new head coach will start immediately.’

Bournemouth’s results of one win and three defeats this season put them just one point above the relegation zone.

However, the Cherries won’t have much time to dwell on Parker’s departure, with Wolves’ visit next for them on Wednesday night.

Parker took charge at Bournemouth last summer after leaving Fulham, who had just been relegated to the championship.

The former midfielder then led Bournemouth back to the top after a two-year absence in his first season, finishing second in the Championship table behind the Whites.

He is now the first sacked in August since Sir Bobby Robson in 2004 and will leave on Saturday after experiencing what he described as the worst day of his career at Anfield.

In his last press conference after the game as Cherries boss, he said: “It’s pretty shocking in terms of the result. The quality (from Liverpool) was much greater in terms of what we have. We can’t come up with an excuse.

“From where we come from, we’re just a little understaffed. It doesn’t shine for me because from the summer I see it exactly like that.

“There are players in this team of tremendous quality, but the level of what they have achieved is the first time they have experienced this competition.

‘We are where we are. While I never thought we could beat 9-0 here, I expected this season to be a real challenge for us at certain times and games. It’s a young team at this level.’

Parker added: “This is the hardest day I’ve had, as a player and certainly as a coach. This is definitely the toughest day I’ve been through. The touchline was quite painful today and I felt it was painful for the players as well. They need help.’

However, his counterpart on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp, insisted that Parker did an excellent job with the Cherries, saying he needed ‘support from everyone’.

‘We’ve talked about it, of course, but not about that. He didn’t moan or anything about the situation.

“But if you look at the other two teams that have moved up (Fulham and Nottingham Forest) and you look at what they’re spending.

“Then you look at Bournemouth and you think, okay… What’s going to happen there? It’s not about the squad not being strong enough or anything, not at all. Only the competition is very difficult.

“I think especially in a club like Bournemouth you need everyone’s support because it’s going to be difficult.

“It’s clear the moment you get the promotion – then it’s already clear, the problems start now.”
