West Bromwich Albion have sacked manager Tony Pulis following their fourth consecutive loss in the Premier League, which has left them lingering just above the relegation zone.
The Throstles suffered a 4-0 defeat at the hands of defending champions Chelsea last Saturday, which ultimately led to the dismissal of the 59-year-old Welshman, who has managed to secure just 2 wins in his last 21 league games.
Pulis managed to help West Brom finish 14th in the 2015-16 campaign, and secure a 10th-place finish last season, but failed to win any of their final 9 matches.
In a official statement, club chairman John Williams said: “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,” he added.
Tony Pulis is the fifth manager to be sacked from as many teams this season. With the Baggies scheduled to face Tottenham next, Assistant Head Coach Gary Megson has agreed to take charge of first-team affairs until further notice.
