– West Brom head coach Pepe Mel
When I first came here, was that come the 12th of May West Brom would be in the Premier League, so I have achieved my maximum ambition.
"Now I have a different ambition. What I want to carry on is (for the club) to keep on improving. That's how I want to move forward in the future.
"Now I need to listen to what the chairman has to say. I want to know what he has in mind for the future of this club, what are his plans.
"But I also want you to understand I'm an ambitious person and I want to be able to put forward my own arguments to take this club forward."
