West Brom has announced the appointment of former Real Betis manager Pepe Mel as their new Head Coach, according to the Daily Express.

The Baggies revealed Mel will be on an 18-month contract, with the 50-year-old to fill the vacant slot left by Steve Clark’s dismissal on December 14. Clarke was relieved of his post after a fourth straight Premier League defeat which left the team just two points above the relegation zone.


“Pepe was a strong contender from the outset due to his impressive achievements and has emerged as our No.1 candidate,” said West Brom’s sporting and technical director, Richard Garlick. “He is a forward thinking coach whose teams are renowned for playing an attractive and positive style of football.”


Mel had previously been in charge of Real Betis for three years since 2010, guiding them into La Liga as Segunda Division champions, before he was replaced at the start of December by Juan Carlos Garrido.


The Spaniard will now take charge of the team for the first time at home to Everton on January 20 with assistant head coach, Keith Downing set to continue as caretaker manager until then.


Albion’s next match is away to Southampton as they look to continue a run of four Premier League games unbeaten.
