Exclusive: Ex-Baggies assistant lauds potential Hawthorns job

Former West Bromwich Albion assistant manager Paul Jewell insists that there is a “terrific job” at the Hawthorns for whoever replaces Sam Allardyce.

The ex-Baggies boss left the club after their relegation to the Championship.

They ended the season in 19th place in the Premier League and will now again be looking to win promotion back to the top-flight next season.

They have been linked with a number of managers, from Chris Wilder to David Wagner, but they have yet to bring in a replacement for Allardyce.

Technical director Luke Dowling has left the club amid the search, but Jewell believes that there is an excellent role available at the Hawthorns for the manager who does decide to take over.

The Baggies, of course, have not had any real stability since the start of the decade, as they enjoyed eight consecutive seasons in the top-flight between 2010/11 and 2017/18, finishing as high as eighth in 12/13.

Since then, they have finished fourth in the Championship in 18/19, 2nd in 19/20, winning promotion, and then 19th this term.

Jewell believes that the set-up at the club is excellent, and he hopes that they manage to find a new boss soon.

Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, he said: “It’s a good atmospheric ground at West Brom. It’s always been a classy club, I always felt it was a clean, aggressive crowd, in the right way, supporting their team, so it’ll be a terrific job for someone that.”
