Pulis future in doubt amid exit rumours
The future of Stoke manager Tony Pulis is shrouded in doubt after reports suggested that he had parted company with the club.
Pulis’ position at the Britannia Stadium was the subject of scrutiny earlier in the season with his side very much in danger of relegation from the Premier League.
However, the 55-year-old had been expected to keep his job after steering the club away from trouble, but it now appears the Stoke hierarchy have opted to change course following a campaign of little progress.
Reports on Tuesday indicated that Pulis has left his position following talks with chairman Peter Coates, although the club have yet to make an official announcemnt.
Pulis’ first spell at Stoke began in 2002, where he managed to help them avoid relegation from Division One before being sacked in 2005 following a dispute with the club’s Icelandic owners.
However, the former Plymouth and Portsmouth boss was re-appointed in 2006, and successfully guided them to the Premier League within two seasons, and has since established them as a top-flight side.
