Kenny Dalglish has said that Steve Clarke will be the perfect fit for Albion and he’ll quickly get all the players onside.

Speaking to Sky Sports shortly before Clarke was announced as our new head coach, the Liverpool Leg-End said.

‘Steve Clarke was a fantastic assistant boss to me at Liverpool, the players all respected him and enjoyed their training with him. I hear he’s about to get the manager’s job at West Brom and I’m happy for him. It would be a great move for him and the club, it would be the perfect place for him to start out because of the stability of the club.’

Dalglish also points out the concern of many fans ie his lack of experience as a manager, but adds.

‘In some ways, the job there is a head coaching position and it would allow him to continue with something he does brilliantly. At the same time, he could ease himself gently into the role of managing a football club. He would be an asset to any club.’

High praise indeed, let’s all hope he can, in fact, live up to and exceed it in the coming seasons.
