West Brom Fires Chief Executive, Chairman as Relegation Threat Intensifies

While not quite under those precise circumstances, the Baggies have today mulched the contracts of both chairman John Williams and chief executive Martin Goodman with the team now bottom of the Premier League and seven points from safety with 11 matches remaining.

The bottom club in the Premier League, now seven points from safety with 11 games of the season to go, have won just one of their last 25 games in the league.

"These changes follow Albion's poor results this season which now sees the Club at the bottom of the Premier League".

But he's returned to steady the ship after his successor Goodman was sacked alongside chairman Williams and will now run the club until the end of the season.

Since Watford sent Marco Silva packing last month the Premier League Sack Race has been dominated by two managers: Antonio Conte and Mauricio Pellegrino. His replacement Alan Pardew has only won one league game out of 13 since taking over.

Following his recent appointment as a director of WBA Holdings, the Club's controlling company, Mark Jenkins is returning to be the football club's CEO. Ten of his previous 14 seasons at the club were spent in the top tier.

West Brom's survival hopes suffered a further blow on Monday when they travelled to Stamford Bridge.

In 2014 he was named chairman of the referees' body, the Professional Game Match Officials, before taking over at West Brom at the recommendation of outgoing owner Jeremy Peace.
