West Brom sack chairman, CEO

Relegation-threatened English Premier League club, West Bromwich Albion, have sacked chairman John Williams and chief executive Martin Goodman after the club’s poor results this season.

The club, owned by Chinese investment group Yunyi Guokai (Shanghai) Sports Development Ltd, added that Mark Jenkins would reprise his role as CEO, having recently been appointed as a director of the club’s controlling company WBA Holdings.

“We would like to thank John and Martin for all their efforts since their appointments and wish them well for the future,” a club spokesperson said.

“There is much to do but for now the focus must solely be on the remaining games of this season,” said Jenkins, whose previous stint as CEO lasted 14 years.

West Brom are bottom of the league after 27 matches, with 20 points after three wins, 11 draws and 13 defeats. They have lost their last three league games.

The club sacked manager Tony Pulis in November and brought in Alan Pardew.

Williams was appointed chairman of West Brom in 2016 when Chinese businessman Guochuan Lai, controlling shareholder of Yunyi Guokai (Shanghai) Sports Development Ltd, completed his takeover of the club.
