Tony Pulis has this evening been confirmed as Wednesday’s new manager.
He quickly emerged as a favourite for the job following the sacking of Garry Monk and will take charge of the team for the first time at Preston on November 21
Pulis, 62, began his management career at Bournemouth,, back in 1992, and has been in charge of clubs for more than 1120 games over the last 28 years.
He took Stoke City into the Premier League in 2008 and guided them to their first-ever FA Cup Final, along with qualification for the Europa League.
Following this success, Pulis moved to Crystal Palace in 2013 and took them to 11th place in the Premier League, also winning the Premier League Manager of the Year trophy,
His next stop was West Brom, where he spent two years before, ironically, replacing Monk at Middlesbrough at the end of 2017. He steered Boro to the play-offs in his first season but missed out on a top six place by one point in the following campaign.
Pulis left the Riverside in 2019 and this will be his 11th managerial post.
