Saido Berahino: Playing under five managers my biggest challenge at West Brom

The 21-year-old has been revealing all about his time at West Brom so far.

West Brom striker Saido Berahino has revealed playing under five different managers since his debut has been the biggest challenge of his fledgling career, according to Sport Magazine.

The 21-year-old is West Brom's top scorer by a distance this term but has faced constant speculation about one thing or another, while also trying to deal with constant changes in management at the Hawthorns.

For one so young, it is easy to forget just how much experience Berahino already has - both on the pitch and of the merry-go-round that is the general footballing world.

New West Brom boss Tony Pulis will no doubt hope he remains in charge of the Baggies, while also hoping he can keep Berahino on board beyond this summer.

For the striker himself, however, dealing with so many managerial changes has been the biggest ordeal of his career to date.

“It’s been very tough – about the biggest challenge I’ve faced as a footballer," Berahino said.

"As a youngster, all you want is someone to put their arm around you, someone you can learn from. Going through all these different managers, you do learn – but your learning curve can dip because you are suddenly out there trying to win a new guy over.”

Things have been looking up for West Brom since Pulis's appointment, with the Baggies into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and outside of the relegation zone in the Premier League.

Nothing but hard work will keep the Midlands side there, though, and Berahino will have to make sure he has fully adjusted to Pulis's style of management as quickly as possible.
