Hull City sacks manager Shota Arveladze after four straight league defeats

Hull City has sacked head coach Shota Arveladze ahead of Friday night’s home game with Luton Town at the MKM Stadium.

Arveladze had been given a shock reprieve after the 3-0 defeat at Swansea City prior to the international break and was expected to be given time to arrest the slide that had seen City lose their last four games in a row.

It’s believed a disagreement over the club’s direction was at the heart of the decision, and though the timing is likely to be called into question just hours before an important Championship game, it was deemed a parting of the ways was in the best interest of the club – assistant head coach Peter van der Veen has also left the club.

The Club Statement read: Hull City can confirm we have parted company with head coach Shota Arveladze.

Arveladze was appointed in January and helped guide the Tigers to Championship safety and a 19th-placed finish in a season of transition at the MKM Stadium.

We can also confirm that assistant head coach, Peter van der Veen, will leave the club with immediate effect.

Andy Dawson will assume the role of interim head coach until a permanent appointment is made.

Acun Ilıcalı, Hull City chairman, said: “During the international break, we had a number of meetings with Shota to discuss the direction of the team and the future of the club. As these meetings went on, it became clear our views weren’t aligned so we have made the decision to part ways.

“Shota and Peter leave with our thanks, greatest respect and fond wishes for the future.

“Our focus is now supporting Andy and the squad and finding the best possible candidate to drive this club forward.”

Everyone at the club would like to thank Shota and Peter for their efforts and wish them both well for the future.
