Former West Brom favourite wants club to make significant managerial decision

Published

Jonathan Greening believes that West Brom should bring Tony Mowbray back as manager for next season as he looks set to leave Blackburn Rovers.

The 58-year-old has done a good job at Ewood Park over the years, including having the side still in the mix for a play-off spot this season. However, he revealed yesterday that no talks have taken place over a new deal, so it appears he will leave in the summer when his contract expires.

That prompted former Albion midfielder Greening to call on the Baggies to turn to Mowbray on Twitter, who was his manager at The Hawthorns for a three-year period from 2006.

During that time, Mowbray won promotion with the West Midlands outfit and he encouraged a stylish brand of football, which Greening was central to.

Steve Bruce is currently in charge of West Brom and all the signs suggest he will remain in place for next season, but it had been reported that there was a break clause, for both him and the club, if they want to part ways this summer.

Do Wolves and West Brom have these 10 things in common?

They have both won 4+ FA Cups.

The verdict

There’s no doubting that Mowbray has done very well with Blackburn whilst working on a budget, and you would expect him to be an attractive option for Championship clubs that do need a new boss.

When you add in his connection with the club and the football his teams generally play, then you can see where Greening is coming from and some fans may agree.

However, it does seem unlikely and it’s unfair to judge Bruce at this early stage, but there will be a pressure on the current boss to improve quickly at the start of next season.
