Paul Scholes: We always knew we could beat Tony Pulis's sides

Tony Pulis Interview - 23/02/2014

The former Manchester United midfielder has been assessing the new West Brom boss.

Paul Scholes has downplayed new West Brom boss Tony Pulis's managerial style.

Indeed, while the former Manchester United midfielder admitted Pulis will bring 'organisation and mental toughness' to the Hawthorns, Scholes also describes the Welshman's sides as having 'nothing fancy' about them.

And the 40-year-old says the West Brom manager's teams are ultimately very beatable, despite Pulis's ability to motivate his players.

"Tony Pulis has his first league game as West Bromwich Albion manager tomorrow against Hull City and I am sure his new players will know exactly what is expected of them," Scholes wrote in the London Evening Standard.

"He will bring organisation and mental toughness to the team. Beyond that, there is nothing fancy about it. His way is sound tactics and good motivation for the players.

"We always knew we were in a game against Pulis’s Stoke, when I played for United. But we always believed we would beat them."
