Scott Parker sacked by Club Brugge after humiliating Champions League exit
Scott Parker has been sacked by Club Brugge after just 12 games in charge.
The club confirmed the news on Wednesday in a brief statement that read: "Scott Parker is no longer head coach of Club Brugge.
"Parker was appointed as Club Brugge's new head coach on December 31, replacing Carl Hoefkens. Before coming to Jan Breydel [Stadium], the former England international was at the helm of teams like Fulham and Bournemouth. Parker won two of his 12 games for Club."
The final straw for the Brugge hierarchy was Tuesday's Champions League humiliation at the hands of Benfica.
Brugge were convincingly beaten as Benfica ran out comfortable 5-1 winners on the night and 7-1 on aggregate over the two legs of the last-16 tie.
Parker's record of two wins in 12 games has greatly damaged Brugge's hopes of winning another Belgian league crown.
He joined with Brugge in fourth place in the Belgian Pro League and 12 points off the top and leaves with them 21 points from the summit.
