Premier League giants announce they have sacked their manager with immediate effect this afternoon.
Gary O’Neil was fired by Bournemouth, despite the fact that he helped the team stay in the Premier League in 2022–2023.
After one productive season in charge, Bournemouth has declared that they have parted ways with head coach Gary O’Neil.
After the club fired Scott Parker, O’Neil took over at the Vitality Stadium on an interim basis. After a successful stretch of play, O’Neil was given the permanent position. The club was able to avoid relegation back to the Championship by ending the season in 15th place, and those remarkable performances would continue for the majority of the remainder of the year.
Despite those achievements, Bournemouth have now confirmed they have parted ways with the head coach.
“Gary’s achievement last season is one I will always be grateful for,” owner and chairman Bill Foley said. “This has been a difficult decision, but it has been made with great consideration to best position ourselves ahead of the coming season.
“As a club, we have put plans in place for long-term success with improvements being made to infrastructure, most notably the development of a new state-of-the-art training facility and the ongoing discussions around upgrades to our stadium.
“We have also identified a number of significant targets in the transfer market this summer and believe this change in direction will provide us with the best platform from which to build.
“Gary will go on to have a long career as a head coach or manager, but we feel that, at this moment in time, a change is in the best interests of this football club. I would like to place on record my thanks to Gary and wish him all the best for the future.”
