West Brom fans have been reacting to the latest news and rumours surrounding the football club.

This comes after the official West Brom Twitter account tweeted a statement from Chief Executive Xu Ke on the club’s vacant head coach position.

Within the statement, Xu Ke thanked fans amid the ‘frustrating period’ the club is enduring, adding while their aim is to return to the top flight as soon as possible, the fact that they have suffered setbacks to their manager search means that he will not set a deadline for securing a successor to Sam Allardyce.

This was picked up by many West Brom fans, who weren’t shy to comment their feelings on the situation.

“This management is living in the shell of West Bromwich Albion because this is not the club I grew up adoring at all, and personally I can’t keep investing into something that’s killing what our club was built on.”

Judging by the reaction from the fans in the comments, many Baggies fans are annoyed by the statement.

Fans of West Brom seem aggravated by the club’s search for a new manager which has encountered several setbacks.

Firstly, owner Guochuan Lai vetoed a move for Chris Wilder due to fears over his relationship with the owners at Wilder’s former club, Sheffield United.

Then, David Wagner, who was reportedly the number-one target for the job after Wilder’s move was blocked, turned down a move to the Baggies to move to Swiss side BSC Young Boys. Meanwhile, former WBA interim manager Michael suggested that he has unfinished business at his current club, Lincoln City.

Earlier this week, West Brom’s sporting and technical director, Luke Dowling, who was leading the club’s search for a new manager, left the club by mutual consent, furthering the current problems at the club and fans are still left wondering who will be the new manager of West Bromwich Albion.
