West Bromwich Albion sack Bilic, appoint Allardyce

West Bromwich Albion sack Bilic, appoint Allardyce”

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.

You just wonder what West Brom would have done if Slaven Bilic had carried a little bit more luck and won against Manchester City...with obviously already an agreement with Sam Allardyce in place, it would have been totally freaky to see Bilic sacked after a win at the Etihad.

Frank McAvennie feels sorry for Slaven Bilic after he was sacked by West Brom today. West Brom are second from bottom in the Premier League after picking up only seven points from 13 games, their sole victory coming against Sheffield United late last month.

According to media reports the final straw for the board was the 2-1 defeat by Newcastle last weekend.

Allardyce, 66, was announced as the club's new manager this evening, signing a contract which will initially run until the end of this season.

'West Bromwich Albion are delighted to confirm the appointment of Sam Allardyce as the club's new Head Coach.

"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".

On 16 May 2018 he was given his marching orders by Everton.

Former England manager Sam Allardyce is among the favourites to fill the vacancy.

Sam Allardyce has been appointed as West Bromwich Albion head coach following Slaven Bilic's departure earlier on Wednesday.

The 27-year old Super Eagles centre-back has continued to be a regular feature for West Brom since helping the side to gain promotion to the Premier League.

But should Allardyce be named, his first match in the dugout is likely to be Sunday's game at home to Midlands rivals Aston Villa.

If they do decide to cut him loose Bilic would be the first Premier League manager to lose his job this season.
