West Brom sack Slaven Bilic

 

West Brom have sacked head coach Slaven Bilic just one day after their impressive draw against Manchester City at Etihad Stadium.

The Baggies pulled off one of the surprise results of the season by earning a 1-1 draw away at City on Tuesday night, with a Ruben Dias own goal cancelling out Ilkay Gundogan's opener in the first half.

Despite seeing his side pick up a credible point in Manchester, Bilic has now been relieved of his managerial duties, with West Brom confirming his departure via their website.

"West Bromwich Albion have today parted company with head coach Slaven Bilic," an official statement released by the club on Wednesday reads.

"Assistant coaches, Dean Racunica and Danilo Butorovic, and first-team coach Julian Dicks have also left the club with immediate effect.

"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. 

"The club will make no further comment at this time."
