Alan Pardew departs as West Brom manager after nine straight defeats



Alan Pardew has left his job as West Bromwich Albion’s manager after just over four months. The club said it was a mutually agreed decision, which follows nine straight defeats.West Brom won only one Premier League match in 18 attempts under Pardew and Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat by Burnley left them 10 points adrift of safety at the bottom of the table with six games remaining. The first-team coach Darren Moore has been placed in temporary charge.

Pardew took over from Tony Pulis with the team just outside the relegation zone and his short spell was notable not only for deteriorating results but also for a squad trip to Barcelona during which four players were alleged to have stolen a taxi .

West Brom had held off making a change because of an apparent lack of options to replace Pardew.

The club said in a statement : “West Bromwich Albion and Alan Pardew have agreed to mutually part company today following discussions between both parties. Assistant head coach John Carver will also be leaving.

“The club would like to thank Alan and John for their efforts and wish them well in their future endeavours.”
