Pulis: I didn’t want the players West Brom have signed

West Brom manager Tony Pulis has launched an attack on the club and its hierarchy.

The relationship between Pulis and the club has long been reported as fractured, with the Welshman the favourite in the betting for the next Premier League manager to leave his job.

That now looks to be more likely after Pulis criticised the club for their transfer business this summer, accusing them of missing out on the signings he wanted.

Chairman John Williams has said that West Brom had bought the players that Pulis wanted, but the manager vehemently disagrees with that.

“The five players that John has said I was happy with, they weren’t the marquee players I wanted to bring in,” Pulis said.

“But we’ve brought the players in and we’ve got to get on with it.

“And there’s all sort of different reasons why those players weren’t brought in, but to try and say they were the five that I wanted, that’s wrong.

“I’ve spoken to John about it and I think he accepts that.

“But we’ve got players in, now everything’s got to be battened down and we’ve got to move on.”

Trouble in paradise, if by ‘paradise’ you mean West Bromwich.
