Roberto Di Matteo pleased with West Brom


West Bromwich Albion manager Roberto Di Matteo has admitted to being content at the Premier League high-flyers.

The Baggies temporarily moved up into fourth position in the table following Saturday's 2-1 success over Fulham.

But the Italian tactician is refusing to get carried away with life in the upper echelons of the top-flight.

He also paid special praise to playmaker Chris Brunt after he played a part in Youssouf Mulumbu and Marc-Antoine Fortune's goals.

"I am very happy where I am and very grateful for the opportunity I have been given here," he said.

"You can't have a long-term plan as a manager because you have a few bad results, you get questioned and then you get a ticket for your holidays.

"But my staff and I are very ambitious. When we arrived last year he had a season when he was in and out of the team, but I think he has matured a lot since then and he has become a tremendous asset for us.

"He (Chris Brunt) is the kind of player who every week gives you a performance of eight (out of ten).

"He is somebody you can go to war with – you know he is on your side."
