West Brom midfielder James Morrison says Saido Berahino must ‘respect the club’ having failed in his attempt to join Tottenham on deadline day.
Berahino handed in a written transfer request on deadline day as Spurs failed with several consecutive bids to bring the 22-year-old to White Hart Lane, prompting the want-away striker to tweet that he would never play for chairman Jeremy Peace again.
Having been given extra time off during the international break, Berahino is now back in training with the Baggies squad and Morrison believes Tony Pulis is just the manager to successfully reintegrate the striker.
“I am sure Tony will have a chat with him. Tony is a good man and he’s a wise man as well, he’ll guide him through it and I am sure he’ll come out the other side,” Morrison told Sky Sports News HQ.
“I think we do [understand]. You can’t knock him for wanting to go to Tottenham, but he should respect the club as they’ve been with him since a young age.”
