Matty Phillips issues two-word verdict on West Brom ace Matheus Pereira



West Bromwich Albion fans will be hoping to put an end to what has been a magnificent campaign as quickly and as safely as possible.

The Baggies have enjoyed a remarkable season under Slaven Bilic, and were well in the hunt for automatic promotion before the EFL season was brought to a halt.

Albion currently occupy second place in the Championship table, and are breathing down Leeds United’s neck as they look to make a return to the Premier League.

Which manager signed each of these 15 West Brom players?

One player who has been hugely important in their bid for promotion is Matheus Pereira, with the Brazilian establishing himself as one of the best players in the Championship this year.

The Sporting Lisbon loanee has scored six goals and chipped in with 16 assists for Albion, and was due to become a permanent West Brom player for £8.25m if he made another league appearance before the break.

He’s arguably one of the most talented players ever to wear an Albion shirt, and the club photographer has now picked his 12 favourite pictures of their number 12 on Instagram.

In the comments section is Matty Phillips who has labelled his teammate as the “magic man” in their bid for promotion.

The Verdict

Pereira is a wonderful footballer and has been so influential in the race for promotion this term.

To be signing him for around £9m is an absolute coup, and you’d bank on him being Albion’s talisman if they reach the Premier League next term.

He clearly has respect from all of his teammates and it’s also clear to see that Bilic has assembled a really good group at the Hawthorns.
