Mel admits welling up after first West Brom win

West Bromwich Albion boss Pepe Mel admits shedding tears after their win at Swansea City.

The 2-1 win eased the pressure and now Mel looks for another win at Hull today to edge his men further away from the drop zone.

Mel said: "The fans were unbelievable and, yes, I did become very emotional.

"I really did. I've only been here two months - a different country, different language and all that.

"The people have shown me a lot of love and I owe them the right to be in the Premier League.

"I feel that I owe them that and myself and the players will be doing everything possible to make sure it happens."
