Tony Pulis faces Stoke City exitby Jack Kitson / 21 May 2013, 14:27Tweet
According to reports Tony Pulis is set to leave Stoke City. Speculation over the 55-year-old's future at the Britannia has been the subject of increased speculation in recent months following a woeful second-half of the season. Now, after seven years in his second stint at the club, he looks to be on his way out.
Stoke had a reasonable start to the 2012/13 season but endured a woeful second-half of the campaign. From December 29 through to April 14 they won just one of 14 Premier League matches, and their poor performances piled the pressure on Pulis, with fans turning on their manager. However, they managed to pick up eight points from their final five games to secure their place in the top flight with a 13th place finish.
Former Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is currently the favourite in the Next Stoke Manager Market, while, the out-of-favour Brighton boss Gus Poyet, Phil Neville and Mark Hughes all feature at this eearly stage.
