– Tony Pulis
I have enjoyed some wonderful times at Stoke City and nobody was prouder than me when, after 23 years of exile from top-flight football, we gained Barclays Premier League status.
Over the past five years we have created history by being the only team in this Club’s 150 years existence to remain out of the bottom six in top-flight football for five consecutive seasons. In leaving I am very proud of what we have all achieved.
To the supporters ... and players who have worked under me during the seven year tenure, I give my thanks for what has been a wonderful adventure.
Tony Pulis has left Stoke City after seven years in charge at the Britannia Stadium, the club has confirmed.
A short statement on the club's website said: "Stoke City and Tony Pulis confirm that they have mutually agreed that Tony will leave the Club with immediate effect."
Tony Pulis is set to leave Stoke City after seven years in charge, according to The Daily Telegraph.
