BREAKING NEWS: Scott Parker is sacked in a row by Bournemouth over transfers and ‘sustainable running of the club’ just four games into the season and three days after 9-0 Liverpool embarrassed

Bournemouth have announced they have sacked manager Scott Parker just three days after being hammered 9-0 by Liverpool.

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 the beating of the Reds – which came after setbacks by Arsenal and Man City following their opening weekend win against Aston Villa – the ex-Fulham boss said there were ‘a million reasons’ why the squad had not been strengthened to his liking .

And now that frustration has boiled over with the 41-year-old leaving the Vitality Stadium and becoming the first top manager casualty of the new campaign, just four games into.

Bournemouth owner Maxim Demin said: “I would like to thank 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.’

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