Tony Pulis has been sacked by Sheffield Wednesday after just 2 months and 10 games into his tenure.
In what is usually a time for goodwill to all, the experienced 62 year old manager will find himself seeking new employment in the New Year. A statement on Monday night by club chairman Dejphon Chansiri confirmed that the 62-year-old has left his post with immediate effect.
“The performances and results have not been of the level expected since Tony Pulis was appointed. There are also other issues which have had a bearing on this decision,” said Chansiri.
“On the pitch, seven points from a possible 30 is not acceptable. It is vital we maintain our Championship status and I feel I must make a change now with over half of the season remaining to give us the best possible chance of doing so.”
First team coach Neil Thompson will take charge of the side for Tuesday’s game against Middlesbrough and until another manager is appointed. Wednesday are currently second from bottom in the Championship table with only 1 win from their last 10 games.
