Mel: I would have kept Long at West Brom

As his side prepare to take on Hull City for the first time since selling Shane Long to the Tigers, West Bromwich Albion Head Coach Pepe Mel has said that he would have kept the Irishman at the Hawthorns had he been in charge at the time of his move, writes Sky Sports.

Long was sold by West Brom in January, just as Mel’s appointment was being finalised, and with Nicolas Anelka’s ban and subsequent sacking, the club have found themselves short on strikers as a result. Currently, only Victor Anichebe, Saido Berahino, and the on-loan Udinese forward Matej Vydra are available to Mel in attack.


And now, Mel has admitted that had he been in charge at the time, he would not have sanctioned Long’s move to the KC Stadium, and also alluded to the fact that West Brom have missed last season’s top scorer, Romelu Lukaku, who did not join on loan for a second season.


"Before I arrived here, Long was out. It was not my problem," said Mel, who, when asked if he would have kept Long, added: "Of course - Romelu Lukaku too. But it was not possible. My job began on January 14, and Shane Long was at Hull."
