WBA chief flies to China to discuss new manager


Following West Brom relegation to the second tier of English football, the club is looking to make changes. This is seen as chief executive Mark Jenkins will fly to China next week to present his choice for the club’s new manager to owner Guochuan Lai. This was reported this week by British news outlet Sky Sports News. 

Guiliano Terraneo, the Italian sporting director who the club appointed last month as a consultant to work directly with Jenkins on the recruitment process, will present his recommendations alongside him.

The plan will be that Lai will sign off on a new manager during these meetings. The club will then look to finalise a deal by the end of the following week to give the new manager as much time as possible before the new season.  

It looks like caretaker manager Darren Moore is still the front-runner for the job along with Brentford manager Dean Smith. 

It had been made known if Moore does not become the permanent boss, a condition for the new person coming in will be he is kept on as a first-team coach showing how highly rated he is by the club. 

Who will be in charge of the club in a few weeks time is unclear however it looks like Lai will be heavily swayed towards Moore. The man himself said at the end of the season it would be "unfair" to speculate on what his future role would be. As he went on to say "The main thing here is for West Brom to look back on the season, reflect, and start making the right decisions that are going to put this club back on the football map," he said.
