have announced the firing of head coach after a disappointing stint in charge of the club

Hull City sit bottom of the league with 13 points, following Swansea’s away win over Crystal Palace on Tuesday.

Mike Phelan took over as caretaker manager in the wake of Steve Bruce’s exit. Phelan’s strong start as head coach led to him gaining the permanent position in October. This included wins over reigning champions Leicester and Swansea in Hull’s first four league games.

However, the tide began to turn for Phelan. The Tiger’s last win was the 2-1 victory against Southampton.

The club statement regarding Phelan’s firing read: “We would like to thank Mike for his efforts both as assistant manager and head coach over the last two years.”

Hull have announced that the hunt for a new manager is under way. The Tigers next play Swansea in the FA Cup Third Round on the 7th January.
