Hull City Sack Manager Mike Phelan
Hull City have sacked their manager Mike Phelan on Tuesday and are expected to have a new manager in place for the FA Cup this weekend. The former Manchester United assistant was let go because the club wanted “a fresh approach,” after just 82 days in his first job as a manager in the Premier League.
The Tigers are looking at former Birmingham City boss Gary Rowett to appoint as manager after he was sacked too Rowett by Birmingham last month. Vice-chairman, Ehab Allam, released a statement on Wednesday explaining the reasons behind the firing and spoke on the club’s hope of finding a new manager before their FA third round matchup with Swansea on Saturday.
“It was after a great amount of consideration that we took the decision to part company with Mike Phelan on Tuesday and I would like to place on record my thanks to Mike for his efforts during his period as head coach,” said Allam.
“Despite the difficult circumstances, the team made a positive start to the season and money was made available to strengthen the squad ahead of the transfer deadline with a significant investment made in the signing of six new players.”
