Mark Hughes has been sacked as manager of Stoke City, just hours after the club’s FA Cup third-round exit at the hands of League Two side Coventry City.

A run of five defeats in seven Premier League games also contributed to Hughes’ departure and he leaves with the club in the relegation zone.

The 54-year-old had been in charge of the Potters for four and a half years after succeeding Tony Pulis in 2013.

Stoke, who play Manchester United on 15 January, say they will “look to appoint a new manager as soon as possible”.
