London, Sept 30, 2022 (AFP) - Hull City dismissed manager Shota Arveladze just hours before their English second-tier fixture against Luton on Friday.

The Tigers have lost their last four matches, conceding 11 goals and scoring just one, and sit 20th in the Championship table.

Arveladze signed a two-and-a-half-year contract in January but lasted just eight months, with chairman Acun Ilicali saying: "It became clear our views weren't aligned."

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

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

"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," Ilicali also told Hull's website

"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."

First-team coach Andy Dawson will take on the role of interim head coach as the club look for a new permanent manager.
