EFL boss in contention for West Brom job with pressure growing on Bilic



Lee Bowyer is among the names in the frame to become the new manager of West Bromwich Albion, according to the Mirror.

It has been a disappointing start to life back in the Premier League for Albion, who have gone winless in their opening eight league games.

The Baggies have lost five of their first eight games and have conceded 17 goals in total, with the pressure starting to pile on Bilic.

When were they formed?

According to the Mirror, Albion’s Chinese owners are weighing up potential candidates to replace Bilic if they are to part company with the Croatian – with Charlton boss Lee Bowyer said to be among those names.

Bowyer guided Charlton to promotion from League One in 2018/19, with the 43-year-old having to work under tough conditions off the pitch.

The Addicks were relegated from the Championship last season, though, and now sit third in League One as they look to make an immediate return to the second-tier.

The Verdict

This would obviously be a massive leap for Bowyer if he was to leave the Valley for the Hawthorns.

He’s done a superb job in charge of Charlton considering the off-field turmoil, but under new ownership, they seem to have stability on and off the pitch.

West Brom are a big club and it would be a big ask to keep them up this season, but it remains to be seen whether Bowyer would be willing to accept the challenge and leave Charlton.
