Scott Parker was sacked by Club Brugge after just 12 games.
The club confirmed the news on Wednesday in a brief statement saying: “Scott Parker is no longer the head coach of Club Brugge.
Parker was appointed as the new head coach of Club Brugge on 31 December, replacing Karl Hoefkens. Before joining Jan Breidel [Stadium], the former England international has led teams such as Fulham and Bournemouth. Parker has won two of his 12 games for the club.”
The final straw for Club Brugge’s hierarchy came Tuesday’s Champions League humiliation at the hands of Benfica.
Club Brugge were convincingly beaten as Benfica won 5-1 that evening and 7-1 on aggregate in the last leg.
Parker’s record of two wins in 12 games greatly undermined Club Brugge’s hopes of another Belgian league crown.
He joined Club Brugge in fourth place in the Belgian Pro League, 12 points behind the top and leaving them 21 points off the top.
