Former Jamaican international Darren Moore has been sacked as manager of West Bromwich Albion in the English Championship despite sitting fourth in the table. The 44 year old was relieved of his duties after going winless in their last three games which has seen them picking up only one point from a possible nine. Chief Executive of West Brom Mark Jenkins says this decision was made as the owners gave him a target of finishing in the top two and not in the playoffs.
Jenkins adds that the club is grateful for his services and will not rule out bringing back Moore in the future as a coach. Moore won 23 of his 48 games in charge of the baggies while drawing 13 and losing 12. With 10 games to go in the Championship, West Brom are 9 points adrift of the top two.
