West Bromwich Albion midfielder Robert Snodgrass has told the Express & Star that he is enjoying being one of the club’s more experienced players this season.
The 34-year-old recently made his return to playing action for the Baggies after a long period out on the sidelines with a back problem and is clearly looking to make up for lost time.
Snodgrass is the oldest of several players who are now into their 30s at the Hawthorns and seems to have found a new lease of life in his career under the guidance of Valerien Ismael.
Speaking recently about his current role within the squad, the Scotsman stated the following:
“I’ve tried to help those around me become better by always talking and communicating.
“I’m just glad to be at a great club with fantastic young players, older boys and staff.
“Sometimes you need to pinch yourself when you’re getting opportunities like this towards the back-end of your career.”

Snodgrass has played seven times so far this season across all competitions and has largely been deployed in central midfield by Ismael.
The former Leeds United man will be hopeful of being involved for his side once more this weekend as they travel to Huddersfield Town on Saturday.
Snodgrass has been a breath of fresh air to the West Brom squad since his return to action and has obviously been helping out on the training ground too.
The experience that he has is invaluable to a squad that is largely made up of players that are at the younger end of the spectrum.
Having players of his reputation about the place helps to breed good habits and overall a winning mentality.
West Brom certainly have a good chance of getting promoted this term and players such as Snodgrass will be crucial towards achieving that goal.
