West Brom have terminated the contract of manager Tony Pulis after the club’s woeful start to the Premier League season, with Gary Megson taking temporary charge. West Brom have not won a match in any of their last 10 top-flight encounters, last winning a match in any competition against League two outfit Accrington in the Carabao Cup. They have lost six times in there opening 12 matches and sit in 17th place in the table, just one point outside of the relegation places after their 4-0 hammering at home to Chelsea on Saturday.
A statement from chairman John Williams reads:
‘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.’
Next up for West Brom they travel to Wembley to take on Tottenham.
