Parker has expressed frustration with Bournemouth’s activity in the transfer market this summer, stressing that his young team are “not well equipped” to face the challenges of the Premier League.

After Saturday’s defeat, he admitted he was “shocked” by the result and many supporters feel the former England midfielder has not been given enough time.

One said, “Sad. 4 games in the season. joke of a club.’

Parker’s aforementioned frustrations in the transfer market led him to clash with Bournemouth’s hierarchy over the club’s vision.

This was further suggested in the statement announcing his departure when Bournemouth owner Maxim Denim said: “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 also need to show faith in and respect for each other.’

This point was another bone of contention for supporters, with fans eager to put the premise on sustainability.

A fan responded to the statement: ”Act sustainably’. Translation: You didn’t want to invest what Scott said was necessary to keep the club in the league.”

Gary O’Neil – who was part of Parker’s backroom staff – takes the temporary charge and is assisted by Shaun Cooper and Tommy Elphick.

Bournemouth will receive Wolves at the Vitality Stadium on Wednesday evening.
