The manager of Hull City, Shota Arveladze, was fired just hours before their Friday match against Luton in the English second division.



However, it had little immediate impact as the Tigers lost 2-0, their fifth straight defeat, and currently occupy the 20th position in the Championship table after having allowed 13 goals while only scoring one.

Andy Dawson, Hull's interim head coach, could only watch as his team fell behind after just six minutes on account of an own goal by Alfie Jones.

A minute before halftime, Henri Lansbury scored with a powerful shot from the edge of the penalty area to pierce the worst defense in the division once more, moving the Hatters into fifth place.

Chairman Acun Ilicali, a Turkish media owner, stated: "It became clear our views weren't aligned." Arveladze signed a two and a half year contract in January, but it only lasted eight months.

A former player with Ajax and Glasgow giants Rangers, Arveladze guided Hull to safety last season.

But the club's poor start to this campaign has led to both the exit of the Georgian and assistant head coach Peter van der Veen.

Ilicali also told Hull's website before kick-off: "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. "
