Bournemouth has parted ways with first-team head coach Scott Parker becoming the first Premier League coach to be sacked.
Through a statement, Maxim Demin thanked Parker for his contribution before they were promoted to the Premier League as he called for respect between each party.
“I would like to place on record my gratitude to Scott and his team for their efforts during their time with us. 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.

“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.” Said Demin
In his place will be Gary O’Neil who will be the interim coach assisted by Shaun Cooper and Tommy Elphick.
The news comes days after Bournemouth suffered a humiliating 9-0 defeat against Liverpool becoming the worst defeat in the Premier League at the moment.
