‘At last’, ‘On our way’ – These West Brom fans overjoyed by breaking club news

West Bromwich Albion have confirmed the appointment of Valerien Ismael as the club’s new head coach. 

Ismael has only been in England a short while, but led Barnsley impressively into the Championship play-offs last season. They were beaten by Swansea City across two legs, but their efforts were praised right across the division.

However, West Brom have swooped to appoint Ismael as Sam Allardyce’s successor at the Hawthorns, finally settling on a new boss on the back of relegation from the Premier League.

In what year were West Brom founded?

Chris Wilder and David Wagner were previous contenders for the job, but West Brom have now settled on the 45-year-old, whose stock couldn’t be higher following an impressive introduction to life in English football’s second-tier.

On the back of announcing Ismael’s arrival on a four-year deal, fans appeared happy enough, with a long drawn out managerial saga now brought to an end.
