Tony Pulis sacked by Sheffield Wednesday after 10 games in charge

Sheffield Wednesday have confirmed the departure of their manager, Tony Pulis, after only 10 matches in charge.

Pulis joined Wednesday in November but had to wait until 19 December to record his first victory. A statement on Monday night 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 the chairman, Dejphon 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.”

Neil Thompson, the first-team coach will take charge of the team for Tuesday’s game against Middlesbrough and until a permanent appointment is made. Wednesday are currently second from bottom in the Championship.
