BREAKING: West Brom Sack Tony Pulis as Manager

By Dipo Olowookere

Premier League club, West Bromwich Albion, have sacked Mr Tony Pulis as their manager after a 4-0 thrashing at home by last season’s champions, Chelsea Football Club.

As a result of this development, former West Brom manager, Mr Gary Megson, who had been Pulis’ Assistant, has been announced as the caretaker coach “until further notice.”

Mr Pulis is the fifth manager to be sacked by an English top-flight club since August 2017.

Chairman of West Brom, Mr John Williams, explained that, “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.”

West Brom, which have been without a win in 10 top-flight games, are currently just a point above the Premier League relegation zone.

The Baggies were beaten 4-0 at home by Chelsea on Saturday, pilling more pressure of Mr Pulis, who has now been sacked.

West Brom will play Tottenham in the league at Wembley this 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 August 22.
