West Bromwich Albion have released a statement confirming the sacking of manages Tony Pulis. The 59-year-old's job was under the miscroscope after a poor run of results for the Premier League side.

A 4-0 loss to Chelsea appears to have been the final straw and the club, without a win in the Premier League since August 19th, have decided to make the move before they slip closer to the relegation zone. They are currently 17th with just 10 points from a possibly 36.

Pulis managed West Brom in 121 games having taken over in January 2015. His contract, now terminated, was expected to run until the summer of 2019.

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."

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