West Brom has sacked Steve Bruce following a poor start to the campaign that put the team in danger of dropping out of the EFL Championship.
Naija News understands that the choice was made after the Baggies drew 0-0 with Luton Town at home, extending their eight-game winless streak in the Championship.
The Club in a statement said: “West Bromwich Albion have today parted company with Manager Steve Bruce. Backroom staff Steve Agnew, Stephen Clemence and Alex Bruce have also left The Hawthorns.
“The club would like to place on record its thanks to Steve Bruce and his coaching staff for their efforts since arriving in February. Under-21s coach Richard Beale will oversee first-team affairs on an interim basis, assisted by James Morrison and Gary Walsh. The process of recruiting a new manager is now underway and an appointment will be confirmed in due course.”
With 32 games under his belt since taking over in February and West Brom sixth in the standings, Bruce leaves with a win percentage of 25%, having won eight, drawn twelve, and lost twelve.
The club’s aspiration of returning to the Premier League has endured a terrible run, and angry fans have become more vocal about it.
West Brom is currently two points in the Championship’s relegation zone after winning just one game so far.
