Ebene News – GB – Clearly there was a huge blackout – Brian Laws on shock over Tony Pulis sacking

A clash of personalities could be behind Tony Pulis’ shocking departure from Sheffield on Wednesday, according to former Hillsborough boss Brian Laws

Pulis was sacked on Monday night just 45 days after replacing Garry Monk, having won one of his 10 games in charge

Laws, who left the Owls by mutual consent in 2009 after three years as a manager, said there appeared to be a rift in the relationship between Pulis and club owner Dejphon Chansiri

“Knowing Tony like me, he’s an outspoken man and he hits you in the eye,” Laws told the PA News Agency

“He will tell you the truth and if you don’t like him it’s hard Maybe it was too much medicine for Chansiri to take

“But I always thought Tony Pulis, he’s very strong-willed, strong-minded, as much as Chansiri is, so it was always going to go in two directions for me

“Either it was going to be a match made in heaven or it was going to end in blood and tears and we have that last one”

Chansiri, whose family owns Thai Union Frozen Group, is looking for its sixth manager in as many years after its takeover in 2015

In November, the club’s 12-point deduction for violating spending rules was reduced to six points by the English Football League and Laws believes Wednesday’s problems are deeply rooted

“They must have been for the simple reason for about a year, it’s a stop-start, inconsistency, not quite to get there,” Laws said

“But I have immense sympathy for the president in the amount of money he has put into the club. His return is excruciating

“So I have immense sympathy for him for this, but you have to support your manager and I don’t know what the conversations were between the two of them

Former Barnsley boss Jose Morais, who previously worked as Jose Mourinho’s assistant at Chelsea, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Porto, has been linked with the vacant post

Gus Poyet and former Vissel boss Kobe Thorsten Fink are also bookmaker favorites, but Laws insisted Pulis was the best man for the job

“You couldn’t have asked a better person to come in and take them out of the mess,” Laws added

“He would be at the top of the list So who else are they going to look for?

“While everyone would have liked Tony to have had a good start, it’s deeper than that and it would always take longer to turn around

“He was doing it slowly, but surely and I’m sure he could have arrived on Wednesday in a safe place”
