New West Brom boss Mel treats players like his family

West Bromwich Albion head coach boss Pepe Mel has quickly settled in at the Hawthorns saying he regards his players as family. "West Brom is a family team and I am the dad - the players are my children," former Real Betis boss Mel told BBC WM.

"I need the players to know I love them. For us, it's important that atmosphere. It's important to me the way the players are together and how hard they work together."
