West Brom boss Clarke not bitter over Liverpool exit

West Bromwich Albion Head Coach Steve Clarke holds no ill-feeling towards his former employers Liverpool, who are also the opposition as the Baggies get their Premier League season underway on Saturday, the BBC has reported.

The post at West Brom is Clarke’s first as a manager, having served as an assistant or a coach at Newcastle, Chelsea and, latterly, Liverpool. While in the North East Clarke worked with the late Sir Bobby Robson and much of his time at Stamford Bridge was spent backing up Jose Mourinho before a spell at West Ham United as Gianfranco Zola’s assistant. Clarke was then hired by Kenny Dalglish but left the club when Dalglish was sacked earlier in the summer.

Clarke was then tasked with replacing Roy Hodgson at the Hawthorns after the former Liverpool manager left the club to take the vacant England manager’s position. Clarke however insists he is not angry or upset over the way his own tenure at Anfield ended, instead admitting he hopes Brendan Rodgers succeeds at the club - but only once their meeting this weekend is out of the way.

He said: “I've got no grievance whatsoever with Liverpool Football Club. I had a fantastic time there and obviously after Saturday I'll wish them well for the season.

Yeah, clearly not bitter. That's why he can't stop talking nonsense about LFC - "Rodgers needs to get 4th to stay in the job"; "I was sacked"; "Me and Kenny would have got 4th this year". Blah blah blah, Clarkey.
