West Brom sack Pulis after Chelsea thrashing

West Brom sack Pulis after Chelsea thrashing

English premier League side, West Brom have parted ways with Tony Pulis after a 4-0 defeat to champions Chelsea over the weekend.

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

Saturday’s result meant, West Brom has lost their last ten league games and are just a point above the relegation zone on the league table.

In a statement on the club’s website, the 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.”

Former manager of the side, Gary Megson, who had been Pulis’ assistant, will take over the managerial position “until further notice”.

The team will play away to Tottenham in the Premier League on Saturday before playing two home games against Newcastle and Crystal Palace subsequently.
