Welshman had been at the Potters for seven years before his sacking.
Tony Pulis is said to be deeply hurt following his sacking as manager of Stoke City earlier this week, according to reports in the Daily Star.
The popular Welshman, 55, rejoined the Potters for a second spell in charge at the Britannia stadium in June 2006, enjoying great success with the club in the intervening seven-year period.
In fact, when Pulis arrived at Stoke seven years ago from Plymouth Argyle the club were still in the Championship, but it took him just two years to guide the team into the top flight for the first time in 23 years.
And under Pulis’s guidance Stoke have remained in the Premier League ever since, with the highlight of his second spell in charge being their run all the way to the final of the 2011 FA Cup, only for Stoke to narrowly lose 1-0 to Manchester City at Wembley stadium.
In total, Pulis won 122 of the 333 matches that he was in charge of Stoke after his return to the club, giving him an overall win percentage of just 37.
