MIKE PHELAN HAS paid for Hull City’s poor run of form after the club announced that it has ‘parted company’ with the 54-year-old.

Hull haven’t registered a Premier League win in 10 games and the former Man United coach has this evening become the latest managerial casualty of the season.

The Tigers currently sit 19th in the table.

Phelan took charge on a caretaker basis following the departure of Steve Bruce in July, before being handed the reins on a permanent basis in October.

However, Hull have won just one of their last 18 top-flight matches, with Monday’s 3-1 defeat at West Brom proving Phelan’s final match in charge.

A statement read: “The club can announce this evening that it has parted company with head coach Mike Phelan. We would like to thank Mike for his efforts both as assistant manager [to Steve Bruce] and head coach over the last two years.

“The search for a replacement has begun and an announcement will be made in due course.”
