Premier League side, West Bromwich Albion, on Monday sacked its head coach, Tony Pulis after the club was thrashed 4-0 over the weekend by Chelsea.
Pulis took over at The Hawthorns in January 2015 and West Brom finished 13th, 14th and 10th under him.
The 59-year-old gaffer won just twice in their last 21 league games for the Baggies, with the club just a point above the relegation zone.
A statement by the club 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.”
Assistant head coach, Gary Megson has agreed to take charge of the first-team affairs until further notice.
