West Brom fans vent fury at Tony Pulis after release of Stephane Sessegnon

Tony Pulis Interview - 23/02/2014

The Baggies announced on Wednesday that they have not renewed the contract of Sessegnon or Victor Anichebe.

West Bromwich Albion have already begun their plans for next season with the announcement on Wednesday afternoon that they have released attacking pair Stephane Sessegnon and Victor Anichebe.

Whilst the exit of Anichebe is unlikely to be mourned by many Baggies fans - the Nigerian featured in just 10 Premier League matches this season - Sessegnon's departure is already being greeted with frustration and anger on Twitter.

The former Sunderland man is 31 years old and wildly inconsistent, but undoubtedly boasts a creative spark on his day, something which has been sorely lacking for much of Albion's season.

Fan animosity towards Tony Pulis has risen and fallen throughout the campaign, butt it has been bubbling away to at least some extent almost perpetually.

One of the main reasons for that resistance to the experienced manager is the perceived lack of entertainment on offer at the Hawthorns - only bottom club Aston Villa scored fewer than the Baggies' total of 34 goals from their 38 Premier League matches this term.

That lack of excitement and creativity has resulted in anger from many Albion fans at the release of one of the club's more enterprising, if unreliable, players, with Pulis serving as the main target.

Here's a taster of the general consensus on Twitter at the news of Sessegnon's departure.
