Hull sack Arveladze ahead of Luton clash

Hull have sacked manager Shota Arveladze after just eight months in charge of the Championship club.

Arveladze was hired in January and managed to guide the Tigers to 19th in the Championship table last season. But with the club in 20th place going into the September international break, Hull chairman Acun Ilıcalı has made a change.

The decision to sack Arveladze comes on the same day the club host Luton in their next Championship game

Assistant manager Peter van der Veen also departs the club so Andy Dawson has been appointed on an interim basis for the time being.

Ilıcalı said in a statement: "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.
