West Brom sack Pulis

eNewsletter

Tony Pulis has been sacked as West Brom head coach with the club a point above the relegation zone and without a win in 10 league games.

The last match Pulis took charge of saw West Brom lose 4-0 at home by Chelsea on Saturday.

Albion won their first three games of the season, but have drawn four and lost seven since beating Accrington in the Carabao Cup on 22 August.

Former West Brom manager Gary Megson, who had been Pulis' assistant, is taking over "until further notice".

Chairman John Williams added: "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."
