Following a stray of poor results in recent weeks, Hull City have SACKED Mike Phelan as head coach after less than three months into his role as their permanent manager.
Following the departure of former manager Steve Bruce, Mike Phelan presumed the role on a caretaker role before being offered the permanent job in October. The 3-1 defeat away at West Bromwich Albion on Monday afternoon left Hull in 20th place on 13 points and without a win in the Premier League since November 6.
Phelad did, however, enjoy a positive start to his managerial career, beating Premier League champions Leicester City 2-1 following another 2-0 win away to Swansea. Albeit losing to Manchester United the following week, Mike Phelan was awarded the Premier League Manager of the Month award for August. Also, the former manager also took the Tigers to an EFL Cup semi-final, facing Manchester United in the first leg in just under a week.
‘The Club can announce this evening that it has parted company with Head Coach Mike Phelan.’‘We would like to thank Mike for his efforts both as Assistant Manager and Head Coach over the last two years.’‘The search for a replacement has begun and an announcement will be made in due course.’
