Club Brugge Sacks Scott Parker After Three Months


Belgian topflight side Club Brugge have dismissed their Manger Scott Parker who have been on the job for just three months, reports.

The former England International was sacked after just 12 games following Tuesday night’s 5-1 thrashing at Benfica.

Parker won just twice in his brief time in charge of the Belgian champions, a run which has seen them drop 19 points off league leaders Genk.

The final straw proved to be Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 defeat in Lisbon, which saw them knocked out of the competition 7-1 on aggregate.

Parker enjoyed a productive Premier League career with Charlton, Chelsea, Newcastle, West Ham, and Tottenham before finishing his career with Fulham in the Championship.

It was there at Fulham that the former England manager took his first true steps in management, having briefly coached in Tottenham’s development setup.

He guided the Cottagers to promotion but also oversaw two relegations in his 105-game reign.

After leaving Fulham in 2021, he switched straight to Bournemouth where he masterminded another successful promotion campaign.
