West Bromwich Albion's new head coach Steve Clake has made it clear that he hopes to build on the success enjoyed by his predecessor Roy Hodgson.
"I spoke to West Brom and was impressed with what they had to say. The timing is just right for me"
Clarke who has worked as an assistant at Liverpool and Newcastle after enjoying a distinguished playing career, mostly with Chelsea added:
"if I can be as successful as Roy I'll be delighted. I know I need to be open with players and give them a cuddle when they need it. If the players enjoy coming to work then I'm half way there"
Matching the success of Roy Hodgson, who led the club to its highest premier league finish will be enough to please the fans, if he can improve on it he'll quickly become a favourite among the Hawthornes faithful.
