Alan Pardew leaves West Brom
Happy days for West Brom fans.
Alan Pardew has left the Hawthorns!
The last straw seems to have been the 2-1 home defeat to Burnley on Saturday.
It’s still not mathematically certain, but West Brom are going down from the Premier League.
The in-form Ashley Barnes put Burnley ahead in the 22nd minute, before Chris Wood doubled the advantage in the 73rd.
Salomon Rondon pulled one goal back, but West Borm couldn’t find a leveller.
On Easter Monday, West Brom have confirmed that Pardew has left the Baggies by “mutual consent”.
Darren Moore gets the West Brom job
Announcing their second managerial change of the season, West Brom told their fans the following:
West Bromwich Albion and Alan Pardew have agreed to mutually part company following discussions between both parties.
The club also confirmed that first-team coach Darren Moore will take over the reigns in the dugout.
The words ‘mutual consent’ are important for the Baggies.
Many fans didn’t think that Pardew would be sacked, despite his eight game losing streak.
It’s now common knowledge that West Brom’s finances are in a terrible state, and few believed the club would be willing to pay Pardew off.
The wording of the West Brom statement suggests that Pardew has foregone his compensation package as he wasn’t technically fired.
