West Bromwich Albion coach Keith Downing doesn't expect to be squeezed out after the appointment of new manager Pepe Mel.

Downing and Mel have spoken about the club's coaching structure.

Downing said: "I'm aware of what was said in the Spanish press. People have put a different spin on it. I got reassured by the football club that there was always a role for myself and Dean (Kiely) here. We are here to help."
