Stoke City Sack Manager Gary Rowett After Just Eight Months

Stoke City have sacked manager Gary Rowett after just eight months in charge.

Members of his immediate coaching staff have also left the club, with Stoke sitting 14th in the Championship table.

Gary Rowett was appointed last summer with the club’s owners hoping that landing him from Derby – whom he led to the playoffs in 2017-18 – could rejuvenate the club after their relegation from the Premier League.

A club statement read: “Stoke City have terminated the contract of manager Gary Rowett.

“Members of his immediate coaching staff have also left the bet365 Stadium.

“The Club would like to thank Gary and his staff for their efforts over the past eight months.

“A new managerial appointment will be made as swiftly as possible but in the meantime Rory Delap, Kevin Russell and Andy Quy will take charge of first-team affairs.”

Early contenders to succeed Rowett include David Moyes and Sam Allardyce, who are both reportedly in the running for the position.
