BREAKING: WEST BROM SACKS MANAGER TONY PULIS

Tony Pulis has been sacked as manager of West Bromwich Albion. A 4-0 defeat at home by Chelsea on Saturday extended the club’s sequence without a victory to 11 matches and led to calls from the fans for Pulis’s dismissal.

West Brom’s Chinese owner, Gurcharan Lai, was at the match and has dismissed Pulis with the club one place and one point above the relegation zone. Former Manager, Gary Megson to take charge on a temporary basis.

Pulis took over at The Hawthorns in January 2015 and West Brom finished 13th, 14th and 10th under him. This season’s dismal form continues a run which began in April.


“These decisions are never taken lightly but always in the interests of the club,” he said.

“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.”
