Tony Pulis defends his work at West Brom

West Brom boss Tony Pulis defended his tenure after defeat at Bournemouth.

West Brom is not exactly a happy ship at the moment, although a takeover by a Chinese consortium is set to be completed next week.

Fans are disgruntled and manager Tony Pulis this week voiced his frustration at their transfer dealings, but after the match he launched a passionate defence of his spell at the club.

"I've been here 20 months," Pulis said, "and we have finished 13th and 14th. There are clubs underneath us who have not made profits and big clubs who have been relegated with massive debts. That was my remit.

"The Chinese are coming next week, the club is being taken over and we'll see what they want to do. But the remit was to keep the club in the Premier League and in profit, and that's what we've done."
