Mel: Wenger would have been fired in Spain

West Brom manager Pepe Mel has claimed that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger would have been fired by now if he was managing a top Spanish side but he is glad that he remains Gunners boss, according to Sky Sports.

The Baggies face Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday and know that a win will ensure Premier League safety for the rest of the season.


Arsenal are currently facing a nine-year trophy drought which could be ended if they secure the FA Cup at the end of the season, but Mel believes the Frenchman would have been sacked by now in La Liga.


"I don't think Arsene would have survived in Spain," said Mel.


"Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid is a good example. Three months ago he was under real pressure and now they are in the Champions League final.


"In Spain, England and Germany it is always the same, the head coach lives for the results.


"But I'm not surprised Arsene is still in a job, as I agree with Arsenal. He has a good philosophy."


Mel took over at West Brom in January, succeeding the departed Steve Clarke and initially found life at the Hawthorns difficult.


Despite the hard start to his Premier League reign, Mel has settled into the role and a win over West Ham last weekend has almost clinched their Premier League survival.


I enjoy being at West Brom," he said.


"But January and February were very, very difficult for me, with Long leaving and the Anelka situation and more.


"The most important thing is at the end, though. If West Brom stay in the Premier League, it is good work.


"But I want more than safety.


"I'm ambitious and want more. The next season, 17th is not enough, I want more. We want next season to be even better."
