Super Eagles midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo’s manager at Stoke City, Gary Rowett, has been sacked.

Rowett, who brought Etebo to the English Championship side in the summer, spent eight months at the club following his appointment in May 2018.

The Potters were one of the pre-season favourites to win promotion, but they are 14th in the second tier, having won just eight of their 26 league fixtures.

Ex-Stoke midfielder Rory Delap, one of Rowett's coaching staff, will help take temporary charge of the first team.

He will be assisted by Kevin Russell and Andy Quy.

A club statement said Stoke hope to make an appointment "as swiftly as possible" as they look for their third manager in a year.
