Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has lauded the ability of West Brom boss Tony Pulis to get the best out of his players and teams.
Mourinho takes his Premier League champions to The Hawthorns for Monday's penultimate game of the season, with Albion safe after Pulis' arrival.
"If I own an English club, I sign Tony Pulis. It's as simple as that," Mourinho said.
"He's a guarantee to achieve what the club wants.
"He never managed a club that wants to be champion, he never managed a club that wants top four, he is always managing clubs that want to survive and want stability. Tony is mathematics. What the club wants, he gives.
"His record is absolutely amazing."
Tony Pulis has left Stoke City after seven years in charge at the Britannia Stadium, the club has confirmed.
A short statement on the club's website said: "Stoke City and Tony Pulis confirm that they have mutually agreed that Tony will leave the Club with immediate effect."
Tony Pulis is set to leave Stoke City after seven years in charge, according to The Daily Telegraph.
The Welshman guided Stoke to Europe and an FA Cup final during his second spell at the club, having been in charge previously from 2002 to 2005.
Stoke manager Tony Pulis has spoken of his pride after being chosen to carry the Olympic flame through the streets of the city on Thursday.
