Pardew was appointed in late 2017 replacing Welshman Tony Pulis as the board aimed to enhance the team’s position in the Premier League as they were two points above the relegation zone at that time.

However, Pardew claimed victory in only one Premier League match in the total 18 league games he led the team in and suffered nine straight defeats, which left WBA at the bottom of the table with only 20 points. The team’s recent 2-1 defeat to Burnley was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

As also announced by the club, the 56-year-old will be replaced by first-team coach Darren Moore who will take over until further notice.

The Baggies’ remaining games will be against Swansea, Manchester United, Liverpool, Newcastle, Tottenham and Crystal Palace.
