West Brom have drawn up a shortlist of four in their quest to find a replacement for sacked manager Darren Moore, with former Huddersfield boss David Wagner one of the people the Baggies are considering, according to a report in the Telegraph.
Wagner is a free agent following his sacking by Huddersfield back in January, but faces competition from former Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic, current Preston manager Alex Neil and former Swansea head coach Carlos Carvalhal.
So would Wagner be a good appointment for West Brom?
“I’d rather have Jokanovic, I just fancy him as the stronger manager.
“Wagner, in my opinion, builds a legacy over time.
“He’s not got that at the Baggies.
“They need results and fast.”
“It’d be a solid appointment.
“I’m not sure he’d be willing to step back into management this early, but he would be a good appointment if they reached an agreement.
“He’s an excellent manager in the Championship and he should certainly be an option.”
“I think this would be a good long-term appointment, considering his style and how well it worked for Huddersfield.
“I like Wagner, and I think he could do great things at any club in the Championship.
“I think the pressure to succeed at West Brom could be a little too much if he doesn’t start well/
“But it would be an appointment that would make sense to me.”
