Sharp Championship exit for former leading Celtic scout

Less than two months after joining Sheffield Wednesday from Celtic Mike Trusson finds himself out of a job following the sacking of Tony Pulis.

Trusson had been working as a European scout for Celtic when his long term colleague was appointed as manager of Wednesday, replacing Gary Monk in November.

With Financial Fair Play in place Wednesday’s budget has been stripped back, under Pulis they have won just one of ten matches with the club announcing last night that they had sacked their second manager of the season.

Trusson was virtually unheard of while at Celtic but after his appointment on November 20 he told the Wednesday website:

I was working as a European scout for Celtic and I was enjoying that but when you get this opportunity at such a great, historical club like Sheffield Wednesday, it was a no-brainer.

The one thing that strikes me is there’s a lot of quality in the squad. Our challenge is to bring that quality out, make the players better and start getting results.

Pulis earned a reputation as a battler by taking Stoke into the EPL and remaining there during an eight year stint at the club but recent spells at Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday have tarnished his reputation for delivering results ahead of style on the park.

Wednesday are currently second bottom in The Championship, after losing four matches on the bounce they beat Coventry then drew away to Blackburn on Saturday but that wasn’t enough to save Pulis.
