Slaven Bilic became the first Premier League manager to lose his job this season when he was sacked by struggling West Brom on Wednesday.
The 52-year-old Croatian’s sacking comes with the side 19th in the table but on the back of an encouraging 1-1 draw with Manchester City on Tuesday.
In a statement, West Brom said: “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.

“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.”
Sam Allardyce, out of work since leaving Everton in 2018, has emerged as the main contender to replace Bilic.
The former England boss is reportedly set to sign an 18-month deal at the Hawthorns.
