Phelan sacked as Hull City’s manager

Mike Phelan has been sacked as Hull City Manager.

LONDON, United Kingdom, January 4 – Hull City have “parted company” with manager Mike Phelan following a dismal run of form that has only seen them claim three points in their last nine games.

Phelan was initially a caretaker manager after Steve Bruce left in the summer, but was appointed on a full-time basis in October.

The 54-year-old made a promising start with Hull and even picked up the manager of the month award for August.

However, things soon started to go downhill and the haven’t won a game since beating Southampton 2-1 on November 6. As a result, they now find themselves rooted to the bottom of the Premier League standings.

Phelan was Hull’s manager for 166 days, 81 of which was in a caretaker capacity.

“We would like to thank Mike for his efforts both as assistant manager and head coach over the last two years,” the club said via Twitter.

Hull confirmed that they have already started looking for Phelan’s successor and added that an announcement will be made “in due course”.
