West Brom sack head coach Steve Clarke
- 15 December 2013
Steve Clarke has been sacked as head coach of West Bromwich Albion after a fourth straight Premier League defeat.
His last game in charge was a 1-0 loss against Cardiff on Saturday, which left the team just two points above the relegation zone.
Albion have won only seven of their 34 Premier League games in 2013.
Joint-assistant head coach Keith Downing will now take over while the club look for a new head coach.
West Brom were eighth last season - their best Premier League finish - but have struggled this term without their striker Romelu Lukaku, who's on loan from Chelsea.
Steve Clarke is the fourth Premier League manager to lose his job this season.
