Alan Pardew has left West Bromwich Albion by mutual consent with the club on the brink of relegation to the Championship.
Pardew took over the Baggies back in November after they had sacked Tony Pulis after a string of disappointing results.
However despite the change of manager, there would be no improvement in results, with Pardew managing just one win during his 18 league games in charge. He leaves the club rock bottom of the Premier League 10 points from safety with just six games to go.
A West Brom statement on Monday read: “The Club would like to thank Alan and John for their efforts and wish them well in their future endeavours.
“First-team coach Darren Moore has been placed in charge of first team affairs until further notice.
“The Club will not be making any further comment at this time.”
Even if interim manager Darren Moore can do the impossible and win all of the club’s remaining games, they will only achieve a maximum of 38 points, which may still not be enough for survival.
