West Brom may have crashed out of the FA Cup earlier this week, but their quest to return to the top-flight of English football is in more than full flow right now.
The Baggies hold a six-point cushion to the playoff positions, which is ultimately a strong position to be in with only ten matches remaining this campaign.
Slaven Bilic’s assistant manager, Danilo Butorovic, took to Instagram following defeat to Newcastle on Tuesday night to heap praise on his fellow countryman and current loan star, Filip Krovinovic.
He dedicated a whole post to him and said:
Butorovic describes the 24-year-old playmaker as the “most underrated” Croatian player before going onto suggest he is not only a “great talent” but also an “amazing person” too.
Krovinovic nearly inspired a comeback against Premier League opposition in midweek, contributing three key passes as Albion came from 3-0 down to make it 3-2 at the Hawthorns.
It was the first time since the end of January that the attacking midfielder had been dropped from the starting XI. He has scored twice and has provided four assists this campaign, per Tranfermarkt.
Although, the Baggies have no option to secure him this summer, so his long-term future is firmly in Benfica’s hands right now.
