Slutsky close to Hull axe after Millwall draw

Leonid Slutsky is close to being sacked as manager of Hull City following the club's underwhelming performances in the Championship so far this season.

The Tigers would have been hoping to challenge for promotion after being relegated from the Premier League last season however they are currently languishing in 20th position on the Championship standings after taking just 18 points from their opening 18 games.

Former Russia national team coach Slutsky is now close to leaving the club after just five months and 18 games in charge following Tuesday's 0-0 draw against Millwall.

The Tigers have not won any of their last five games and they have not shown any signs of real progress under Slutsky.

Despite the club losing many of their key players such as Sam Clucas, Harry Maguire, Andrew Robertson and Curtis Davies following relegation, Slutsky was given £12 million to bolster the side and vice-chairman Ehab Allam believes that a managerial change is now needed.
