The club have announced tonight that they have parted ways with the coach after less than three months
Hull have tonight announced that they have parted ways with manager Mike Phelan.
The club are not currently in the greatest of form and have decided that now is time for a change, with the side sat in 19th place in the Premier League table. They haven’t won in their last ten Premier League games and have only won three games so far this season.
Gary Rowett linked with vacancy
Phelan had only been in permanent charge since October, after doing reasonably well in charge of the club on an an interim basis before that.
Gary Rowett is the early favourite to take over at Hull. His last job was at Birmingham City, where he impressed massively in the Championship. So much so that it came as a rather large surprise when he was sacked by the Blues board in December.
Alan Pardew has also been linked with the vacant post. He was only relieved of his duties by Crystal Palace on December 22, so if he was handed the reigns at the club, it would be a rather quick return to management for the former Newcastle boss.
Chris Coleman – currently in charge of Wales – and Roy Hodgson are two other people who have been linked.
