share on:

West Brom have sacked manager Tony Pulis, the club has announced.

Tony Pulis has left his position as head coach at the Hawthorns after just two wins in his last 21 Premier League games following Saturday’s 4-0 defeat to Chelsea.

Albion are just a point and a place above the relegation zone after an 11-game winless run in all competitions.

West Brom won their first three games of the campaign, but have not won since 22 August, when they beat League Two Accrington 3-1 in the Carabao Cup

Chairman John Williams said in a statement: “These decisions are never taken lightly but always in the interests of the club.

“We are in a results business and over the back end of last season and this season to date, ours have been very disappointing.

“We would like to place on record our appreciation of Tony’s contribution and hard work during a period of transition for the club which included a change of ownership. We wish him well in his future endeavours.”

Assistant Head Coach Gary Megson has agreed to take charge of first-team affairs until further notice.

The other top-flight bosses to be sacked this season are Ronald Koeman (Everton), Frank De Boer (Crystal Palace), Craig Shakespeare (Leicester City) and Slaven Bilic (West Ham).
