After a humiliating 4-0 defeat to Chelsea, Tony Pulis has been sacked as West Brom boss.
According to AFP, “Pulis has had just two wins in his past 21 Premier League games following Saturday's [match] and the club sit just one place above the relegation zone after an 11-game winless run in all competitions.”
In January 2015, West Brom was a point above the relegation zone under the tenure of Alan Irvine. The 59-year-old replaced Irvine to eventually lead the club to 13th.
AFP adds that West Brom finished 14th in 2015-16 and came 10th last season but failed to win any of their final nine matches.
It is said that former West Brom manager Gary Megson, who had been Pulis' assistant, will take over "until further notice".
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."
On Friday, Pulis mentioned how West Brom would struggle to find a better replacement, boasting record of never being relegated as a manager, saying: "If I left tomorrow I'd put my record on the table and put it in front of anybody and see what they think of what I've done here in three years."
Pulis has previously been in charge at Crystal Palace and had two spells at Stoke.
He is the fifth boss to be fired this season, along with Frank de Boer (Crystal Palace), Craig Shakespeare (Leicester), Ronald Koeman (Everton) and Slaven Bilic (West Ham).
