West Brom's Tahvon Campbell explains why he loves Saido Berahino despite controversy

Saido Berahino Albion

West Brom teenager Tahvon Campbell has spoken highly of Saido Berahino.

West Bromwich Albion teenager Tahvon Campbell has told the Birmingham Mail that he loves playing alongside Saido Berahino.

The Baggies Under-21 side beat Swansea City 3-0 on Monday evening, and both Campbell and Berahino got on the scoresheet in an impressive win.

Berahino came up through the ranks at The Hawthorns, to the point where he scored 20 goals for West Brom in the Premier League last season - and Campbell will be hoping to do the same.

The 18-year-old is featuring for the Under-21 side, and whilst a first-team place may be some way off right now, Berahino's path is an example of what can happen for Campbell.

Now, Campbell has told the Birmingham Mail that he 'loves' playing alongside Berahino, noting how much the 22-year-old striker is helping him.

"Saido has got lots of experience," said Campbell. "I just love playing with him and learning from him. He helps me a lot," he added.

The comments come at an interesting time, considering that Berahino is out of the West Brom side after some controversy over the summer.

As reported by Sky Sports, Berahino vowed never to play for West Brom again over the summer, having been prevented from joining Tottenham Hotspur.

Now out of the side and seemingly at odds with manager Tony Pulis, many have questioned Berahino's attitude - but Campbell's comments have shown that the Burundi-born forward can help fellow young players with their development.
