West Brom chief Jenkins launches club review with Pardew meeting

Published on: 14 March 2018

West Brom chief exec Mark Jenkins has launched a complete review of the club tihs week.

The Express & Star says Jenkins and manager Alan Pardew met at the training ground yesterday afternoon to discuss the future of the club, and the chief executive told his under-pressure head coach that he was keen to keep him until the end of the season.

Although Jenkins and the board have been concerned by results, the returning chief is eager to address all deep-seated problems within the club ahead of a reboot in the summer.

Pardew's position will be re-assessed then, and while it currently looks unlikely that he will stay on, the board are open to all eventualities.

Jenkins told the head coach to restore some fight and spirit into the Albion squad for the last eight games and that if the Baggies were destined to go down, they need to go down fighting.

Li Piyue, who is currently a director on the board, has emerged as a potential new chairman as the club's Chinese owner Guochuan Lai attempts to exert more control on proceedings.
