West Bromwich Albion fans have been reacting to regarding Valérien Ismaël and his choices when it comes to his backroom staff at The Hawthorns.

The Frenchman has been in charge for a little under a week and has already begun work in tweaking the setup at the club to the way he likes it. Not only is he reportedly close to his first signing in the form of Alex Mowatt from his former club Barnsley, but he is also making decisions when it comes to his backroom staff as well.

To kick off this quiz on West Bromwich Albion's 2019/20 season, how many points did the Baggies end the 2019/20 Championship campaign with?

According to a report in The Express and Star, “it is understood Ismael is hoping to add at least two more coaches to his staff to support him and club legend James Morrison.”

The former racked up 341 appearances for the Baggies during his playing career before being appointed to the first-team coaching staff last December, so if there’s anyone that knows the club and can help integrate Ismaël into his new surroundings, it’s Morrison.

This news was relayed to fans via @WBAReport on social media where there were plenty of supporters that were delighted to hear the news that Morrison looked set to stay during the shakeup of the club:

“Best news of the day”

“Like this a lot. He had a positive influence whenever he played”
“Great news”
“Brilliant”
“Love that”
“Top man”

Are you confident West Brom will win promotion again next season?

Making a move like this and keeping hold of someone that’s so ingrained in the club is a great way to get yourself on board with the fans – let’s see what Ismaël has up his sleeve next.
