West Brom Sack Slaven Bilic
Slaven Bilic has become the first English Premier League manager to lose his job in the current season after he was sacked by new comers, West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday
In a statement, the club said: “West Bromwich Albion have today parted company with Head Coach Slaven Bilić.
“Assistant Coaches, Dean Računica and Danilo Butorović, and First Team Coach Julian Dicks have also left the club with immediate effect.”
Bilic leaves Albion at 19th place with seven points from 13 fixtures with his team having held Man City to a 1-1 draw at the Etihad on Tuesday night.
The statement continued: “Albion would like to thank Slaven and his coaching staff for their efforts in achieving promotion last season and wishes them all well in the future.
