Nick Barmby has lost his appeal against the decision to sack him as Hull manager.
Tigers chairman Assem Allam has backed the verdict of vice-chairman and son Ehab Allam to dispose of Barmby's services earlier this month. Barmby was initially suspended on April 30 over comments made about the npower Championship club's finances and a lack of funds made available to strengthen during the January transfer window.
It was announced on May 8 that Barmby had been sacked after six months in charge of his hometown outfit, a decision the 38-year-old subsequently appealed. But that has been rejected by Assem Allam following a hearing between him and Barmby.
