Tony Pulis addresses his future plans with West Brom

Tony Pulis Interview - 23/02/2014

Pulis has admitted that he would love at least five years at West Brom.

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail, Pulis has addressed his future at West Brom, and admitted that he would love at least five years in charge at the Hawthorns.

The Welsh coach said: “If you said to me ‘How would you map it out?’ I’d love to have five years here where people would back me and give me the opportunity to push the club forward on and off the pitch.”

These are certainly words that should delight Baggies fans, as Pulis has proven in his career that he is a manager well suited to stabilising Premier League clubs, and leading them up the table.

His work with Stoke will never be forgotten, whilst his short tenures with Crystal Palace and West Brom have brought swift upturns in fortunes.

He has already started working impressively at the Hawthorns, and the Midlands club are no longer under the threat of relegation that hung over their heads for much of this campaign.

The 57-year-old may not have the greatest reputation for the football his sides play, but he has never been relegated in his entire career, and West Brom needed a man in charge to stabilise the club after a turbulent couple of months.

He has proven to be a great boss for the Baggies, and with five more years planed at the helm, the club can only be moving upwards.
