Sky Sports pundit offers damning assessment of West Brom's Berahino

West Brom - The Hawthorns

West Bromwich Albion's Saido Berahino has been accused of being too arrogant by Tony Gale.

Sky Sports pundit Tony Gale has offered a rather damning assessment of West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino, accusing him of getting too big for his boots.

Berahino has become the Baggies' main attacking star this season and his performances have seen him linked with some of the biggest clubs in the country.

The likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool have been credited with holding an interest in the rapid frontman by the London Evening Standard, and Gale thinks speculation has turned Berahino's head.

The former West Ham United player says that the Burundi-born forward has become arrogant and that Tony Pulis is the perfect manager to knock him down a peg or two.

"He got a bit too big for his boots in my opinion," Gale said. "Tony Pulis is the perfect manager for him, he will give him a kick up the backside. He’s got a manager who will keep his feet on the floor."

Berahino frustrated West Brom recently by hinting that he could leave the Hawthorns this summer, per the Mirror, and his attitude has been questioned ever since.

Despite this the 21-year-old has actually been one of the Baggies' best performers since Pulis arrived and has fulfilled whatever function the manager has asked of him.

Whether put out on a wing or in his favoured striking position, Berahino has played well and is now on 18 goals for the season.

As a result, it is no surprise to see his reputation grow and Berahino will be hoping to silence any doubters by continuing to increase his total before the end of the campaign.
