Stoke City have sacked manager Mark Hughes following the really slow start to the season so far (just two wins in the last twelve Premier League games) and tonight’s FA Cup third-round defeat against League Two side Coventry City.
Hughes himself said after the game: “It is disappointing because it is the same things happening week in week out, and it isn’t down to the fact that we aren’t trying to rectify them”.
An official statement from the club read: “Stoke City can confirm that the contract of manager Mark Hughes has been terminated with immediate effect”.
The Club will look to appoint a new manager as soon as possible and will be making no further comment at this time.#SCFC 🔴⚪️
