West Brom club sacked coach Slaven Bilic just a day after drawing Man City in round 13 of the Premier League.
Bilic was sacked by West Brom
West Brom vs Man City is a match that the West Brom players were surprised when they earned a point at Etihad, after Ruben Dias’s own goal. Man City held the ball 77% and launched 26 shots, but only one goal from Ilkay Gundogan.
West Brom is ranked 19th on the rankings. This team has no-win for the third consecutive match. This season, West Brom won only one match, drew 4 and lost to 8. This team has the weakest defense in the Premier League when they receive 26 goals in 13 matches.
Previously, the leadership of West Brom had considered sacking coach Bilic when he saw the team’s poor performance. He became the first coach to be sacked in the Premier League season 2020/21.
Mr. Bilic has led West Brom since 2019, replacing Darren Moore and helping the team win tickets back to the Premier League in the first season of leadership. British media reported that Mr. Sam Allardyce will likely become the new coach of the Hawthorn’s home team. On December 21, West Brom will have a match to welcome Aston Villa in round 14.
West Brom had a new coach just five hours after the sacking of Bilic
West Brom appointed former England manager Sam Allardyce to replace Slaven Bilic for his goal of relegation to the Premier League this season.
The 66-year-old strategist has directed 512 games in the Premier League, leading teams Bolton, Newcastle, Blackburn Rovers, West Ham United, Sunderland, Crystal Palace, and Everton. Despite this, he has not led any teams since leaving Everton in 2018.
The former England coach is tasked with helping West Brom relegate to the Premier League this season. The Hawthorn’s home team has only 1 win, 4 draws, 8 losses after 13 rounds and is ranked 19th on the rankings.
According to the BBC, this is not the first time coach Allardyce has been assigned the responsibility of saving teams in crisis. In December 2008, he took over the lead of Blackburn Rovers, the 19th-ranked team at the time, but finished 15th. He had never been relegated to the Premier League.
