Hull City sack Mike Phelan

Struggling Premier League side Hull City have sacked head coach Mike Phelan.

The decision was made to relieve Phelan of his duties after the 3-1 defeat to West Brom, a result which left Hull bottom of the Premier League.

Phelan took charge of Hull in the summer initially on a caretaker basis, before being given the job full-time in October.

However, the former Manchester United assistant manager won just three of the 20 league games during his five-month tenure.

The club said on Twitter: “We would like to thank Mike for his efforts both as assistant manager and head coach over the last two years.”

Assistant manager Neil McDonald, goalkeeping coach Bobby Mimms and chief scout Stan Ternent have also left the club.
