Tony Pulis makes an admission about Saido Berahino

West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis speaks highly of Saido Berahino.

West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis has told Sky Sports that everyone in the dressing room likes Saido Berahino’s attitude.

Berahino has been in good form recently after struggling to play to the best of his ability for most of the season.

Pulis is pleased with the young striker’s performances in recent weeks, and has admitted that he has been a big miss.

“Saido has been a big miss and I think people are starting to realise now what a big miss he has been," Pulis told Sky Sports about the striker.

"Everybody in the dressing room is delighted with his attitude and how he's been playing. He's made some mistakes - I think he would do it differently if he had the chance again.

"But he's a young lad, he's had to learn. He's slipped down a few times, but he's got back up - he's learned.”

Berahino is a very promising young striker, and he is playing well at the moment.

The 22-year-old 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.

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

West Brom will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they take on relegation candidates Norwich City at The Hawthorns in the league.

Pulis’s side will head into the game on the back of a 1-0 victory over Manchester United at home in the Premier League.
