West Brom sack manager Tony Pulis

West Brom have sacked manager Tony Pulis after three years in charge, following the club’s 4-0 defeat to Chelsea on Saturday.

The 59-year-old leaves his role with having won just twice in their last 21 league games, with the club just a point above the relegation zone.

West Brom are without a win in the league since 19 August and Pulis leaves the club after nearly three years in charge, with Gary Megson taking over first-team affairs until further notice.

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.”
