Tony Pulis has been sacked as Sheffield Wednesday manager after only 45 days in the hot-seat, with the club second from bottom in the Championship table.
The ex-Stoke City, West Brom and Middlesbrough boss took over from Garry Monk on 13 November, after a lacklustre second half of last season and poor start to this season, coupled with a six-point deduction.
Pulis wasn’t able to turn fortunes around, only winning once during his tenure – a 1-0 at home against Coventry on December 19.
Sheffield Wednesday late on Monday delivered the news that Pulis would be departing from the Hillsborough dugout, with immediate effect. His replacement is unclear at present so why not take advantage of a Betway sign up offer and have a punt?
Owl’s chairman Dejphon Chansiri explained in a statement on the club’s website, that the decision to sack Pulis was not made solely on the team’s results.
“The performances and results have not been of the level expected since Tony Pulis was appointed,” said Chansiri.
“There are also other issues which have had a bearing on this decision.”
Wednesday’s first-team coach Neil Thompson will take the reins until a permanent appointment is made.
His first game will be at Hillsborough on Tuesday against Neil Warnock’s Middlesbrough.
