Alan Pardew parts company with West Brom

Alan Pardew parts company with West Brom

Manager Alan Pardew has left relegation-bound West Bromwich Albion of the English Premier League on ‘mutual consent’ after eight successive league defeats.

The former Crystal Palace boss took over from Tony Pulis last November following a run of 10 Premier League games without a victory, and a 2-1 defeat to Burnley last weekend left his side 10 points from safety with six games left.

The 56-year-old won just once in 18 league games under him, taking only eight points from a possible 54.

On Monday, the Baggies wrote on their website: “West Bromwich Albion and Alan Pardew have agreed to mutually part company following discussions between both parties.

“Assistant head coach John Carver will also be leaving.

“The club would like to thank Alan and John for their efforts and wish them well in their future endeavours.”

Coach Darren Moore has taken over the first-team and is likely to stay in charge for the rest of the season.

West Brom are in their eighth successive Premier League season but have taken only 20 points from their 32 matches this campaign.
