Alan Pardew leaves West Brom after a string of defeats
Pardew stands down as Baggies manager as club stare relegation in the face
April 2nd, 2018
It is no great surprise to see Alan Pardew stepping down at The Hawthorns after failing to get a tune out of a West Brom squad that many deem to be too good to get relegated this season.
Pardew has left his post as Baggies manager, with Albion virtually certain to be relegated to the Championship this season and assistant head coach John Carver will also be leaving the club.
The club said in a statement: “West Bromwich Albion and Alan Pardew have agreed to mutually part company today following discussions between both parties. Assistant head coach John Carver will also be leaving.
“The club would like to thank Alan and John for their efforts and wish them well in their future endeavours.”
West Brom are now likely to bide their time when it comes to finding a successor for the vacant role, with several candidates likely to apply for this position.
Pardew has managed several English clubs although might now decide to take some time out from the game after this latest setback.
