Managers depart EPL clubs
Subscribe to Soccer America Daily
A day after the end of the English Premier League season,
underachieving Manchester City fired Manager Stuart
Pearce, while Wigan Athletic appointed assistant Chris Hutchings as its new
manager after Paul
Manchester City finished in 14th place, having scored only 29 goals in
38 league matches, and 10 goals in 19 home games, the lowest total for
a top-flight team since the English League began in 1888.
Jewell's resignation came less than 24 hours after the Latics avoided
relegation with a 2-1 win at Sheffield United that sent the Blades
the Championship League. He said he wanted to take a six-month break
from soccer management. Wigan chairman Dave
Whelan rejected speculation that Jewell would take over as
manager at Manchester City. Whelan had hired Jewell in 2001 when the
Latics were languishing in the third level of English soccer. They won
promotion to the EPL in 2005.
Glenn Roeder resigned as
Newcastle manager just over a week ago, and
the Magpies hired Sam Allardyce, who resigned as
Bolton Wanderers manager last week. He had also been linked to the position that just
opened up at Manchester City.
Former assistant Sammy Lee has
taken over at Bolton following Allardyce's resignation.
The fate of Neil Warnock,
manager of relegated Sheffield United, will be decided at the Blades'
board meeting on Thursday.
