Slaven Bilic is sacked by West Bromwich Albion hours after impressive draw against Man City

West Brom manager Slaven Bilic has been sacked after 18 months in charge, with the club 19th in the Premier League.
On Wednesday, December 16, the Croatian football manager was dismissed, despite his side earning an impressive 1-1 draw on Tuesday night at Manchester City. 
The Baggies have only gathered seven points from 13 league games, with eight defeats. 
Bilic was informed by Ke Xu, the chief executive, in his office at the training ground, of his
dismissal at 11:45 am on Wednesday.

 A club statement read: ‘West Bromwich Albion have today parted company with Head Coach Slaven Bilic.

‘Assistant Coaches, Dean Racunica and Danilo Butorovic, and First Team Coach Julian Dicks have also left the club with immediate effect.

‘The Baggies are currently 19th in the Premier League table with seven points from 13 fixtures.

‘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.’

There are rumors, however, that talks between West Brom and Sam Allardyce are underway 
to become Bilic’s successor ahead of the match on Sunday against local rivals Aston Villa.
