Stoke City have dismissed manager Mark Hughes after the club lost in the FA Cup to Coventry City earlier today.
The loss was the first time Stoke have been knocked of the cup by a team for the fourth tier of English football or below since losing to Bradford City in 1938, and it sees Hughes relieved of his duties three hours after his 200th game in charge of the Potters
Stoke haven’t been in the best of form in the past 18 months, finishing in a disappointing 13th last season, and after 22 league games this term they’ve slipped into the bottom three. Stoke City confirmed the decision via their Twitter page, and expect to name a new manager as soon as possible.
The relegation-threatened Midland club travel to Old Trafford to play Manchester United in 10 days.
