Steve Bruce sacked by West Brom after poor start to season | West Bromwich Albion

Steve Bruce has been sacked by West Brom after a poor start to the season that has left the club in the relegation zone.

The decision follows a 0-0 draw at home to Luton Town, which extended the Baggies’ winless run in the Championship to eight games.

A club statement said: “West Bromwich Albion have today parted ways with manager Steve Bruce. Backroom staff Steve Agnew, Stephen Clemence and Alex Bruce have also left The Hawthorns.

“The club would like to thank Steve Bruce and his coaching staff for their efforts since his arrival in February. Under-21 coach Richard Beale will oversee first-team affairs on an interim basis, assisted by James Morrison and Gary Walsh. The process of recruiting a new manager is now underway and an appointment will be confirmed at a later date.”

Bruce leaves with a 25% win ratio, having won eight, drawn 12 and lost 12 of his 32 games since taking charge in February with West Brom sixth in the table. It has been a dismal run for a club with ambitions of returning to the Premier League, leaving supporters increasingly vocal in their anger.

West Brom have won just once in the Championship all season, leaving them two points from safety. Bruce was loudly booed for his substitutions against Luton on Saturday, the latest – and, as it turned out, final – sign of his broken relationship with the fans.
