Career Summary

Tony Pulis was appointed as manager of newly promoted Barclays Premier League side Crystal Palace in November 2013, just a few months after bringing an end to a successful tenure in charge of Stoke City before leaving by mutual consent at the end of the 2012/13 season.

The Welshman led Stoke to the Barclays Premier League for the first time in the 2007/08 season, with automatic promotion from the Championship, and then kept the club safely in the top flight for the next five years.

Pulis guided Stoke to 12th in their debut Premier League season. The club finished 11th the following season and they enjoyed another mid-table finish in the 2010/11 campaign, which was accompanied by an appearance in the FA Cup Final against Manchester City.

Despite losing to Man City at Wembley, the cup run ensured that Stoke qualified for the UEFA Europa League for the following season. The Potters progressed through the group stages before being edged 2-0 on aggregate by Spanish giants Valencia in the first knock-out round.

Pulis spent over ten years at the Britannia Stadium collectively. He first managed the Potters from 2002 to 2005 before re-joining after a brief spell at Plymouth Argyle, guiding Stoke to promotion to the top flight.
