MOST COMMENTED

Tony Pulis has resigned as Stoke City coach, according to reports in England. The 55-year-old Welshman had a meeting with club Chairman Peter Coates on Tuesday and decided that the time was right to part ways after seven years at the helm.

Pulis guided Stoke to the Premier League for the first time in 23-years in 2008, and the club has stayed up ever since. Stoke finished 13th this season, but endured a nervous end to the campaign when it was drawn into the relegation fight on the back of a poor record in 2013. Aside from keeping the club in England’s top flight for five straight seasons, Pulis also guided Stoke to the FA Cup final in 2011, where it lost to Manchester City.

During the January transfer window, Pulis signed U.S. international Brek Shea from FC Dallas for $3.8 million. However, the 23-year-old, who has been recovering from injury, made just two appearances.
