Hull City sacks Mike Phelan

Hull City have announced the dismissal of manager, Mike Phelan after a poor run of form.

The manager was appointed on a caretaker basis after the sacking of Steve Bruce, and got a permanent deal in October.

However, Hull have won just one of their last 18 top-flight matches, with Monday’s 3-1 defeat at West Brom proving Phelan’s final match in charge.

A statement read: “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 [to Steve Bruce] and head coach over the last two years.

“The search for a replacement has begun and an announcement will be made in due course.”

Former Birmingham City boss Gary Rowett is being heavily linked with replacing Phelan.
