The West Bromwich Albion striker seems happy at the moment.

West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino has revealed to The Sun that he has a good relationship with club chairman Jeremy Peace.

The 22-year-old has also outlines how he changed his attitude after his move to Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2015 fell through.

“There was an opportunity to play for Tottenham and I wanted it to happen,” Berahino told The Sun. “I needed to look at my life. I had to get my act together. It affected my family, especially my mum and I feel really bad about that.

“What I did was not on. I had to make a fresh start — it was one of those days when I woke up and I just wanted to put things behind me.

“After the transfer window closed last month I realised I was going to stay at West Brom, so I programmed myself to get fit.”

While discussion his relationship with Peace, Berahino said: “Jeremy didn’t have to call a meeting with me to resolve it because he can speak to me at the training ground.

“We don’t have a headmaster-school pupil relationship. It is different to that and I am pleased things have been resolved.”

Berahino is a talented young player, and he has just started to come into some good form.

The former England Under-21 international has scored four goals and created 10 chances in 24 Premier League appearances for West Brom so far this season.

The youngster has a pass accuracy of 78% and a shot accuracy of 50%, and has won eight headers, 10 dribbles and nine tackles.

West Brom are 11th in the Premier League table at the moment with 39 points from 29 matches.

Given the Baggies’ recent form, fans will hope that the team can finish in the top 10 of the Premier League this season.

As for Berahino, he should be looking to end up with at least 10 goals in the league by the end of the season.
