West Bromwich Albion have parted ways with their head coach, Steve Bruce after a poor start to the season, a condition which has left the team in the relegation pit.
The club’s decision to sack Bruce is coming after their 0-0 draw at home against Luton Town, a match which drew that winless run in the England Championship league to eight matches.
The club via 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 under way and an appointment will be confirmed in due course.”
Steve Bruce leaves West Brom with a win ratio of 25%, where he won 8, drew 12 and was defeated in 12 of his 32 matches since he took over the coaching job in February.
The club had been expectant of returning to the English topflight league, but, the winless condition of the team has continued to shatter these dreams, leaving the fans in anger and unhappiness.
