West Brom manager Tony Pulis said the club had become complacent prior to his arrival

New West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis hints that the Midlands club have perhaps been complacent in the Premier League in recent seasons, reports BBC Sport.

West Brom have been in the Premier League for five years now, but have been struggling of late. They enjoyed a record-high 8th-placed Premier League finish under former manager Steve Clarke back in 2013, but have since been closer to the drop zone. Pulis feels it’s because the side have grown complacent.

“Have a look at the Championship and how many teams who had long periods in the Premier League. What they did was take their foot off the pedal and became complacent. We’ve got to shake the complacency off. It’s not easy to do and we haven’t got a lot of time to do it,” he said.
