Scott Parker SACKED by Club Brugge as disastrous 67-day spell ends in Champions League humiliation | The Sun
SCOTT PARKER has been reportedly sacked by Club Brugge following the club's exit from the Champions League.
He is believed to have left the club less than three months after he was appointed to the role on December 31 last year.
Parker was in the dugout last night as the Belgian side were dumped out of the Champions League by Benfica 7-1 on aggregate.
It was Brugge’s biggest margin of defeat (1-7) on aggregate ever in European knockout football (excluding qualifiers) while it was the first time that they had conceded five or more away from home in the Champions League since a 6-1 defeat to Monaco in November 1988.
And it has been reported by talkSPORT that it was the final staw leading to his sacking.
Parker will have left the club still in fourth place in the Belgian Pro League, but they are now 21 points behind leaders Genk.
