Clarke was impressed by the on-loan Dynamo Kiev left-backâs introduction to English football.
âI thought Goran Popov came in on his debut to play in a game like that and showed the qualities heâs got,â he told the WBA website.
âWe had no doubts he would be able to handle the game.
âHeâs an experienced player, has played in a lot of big matches, and he showed that today.
âHeâs got a terrific left foot, knows the game, knows how to defend, and is a strong boy.
âHe gives us another good option in the squad.â
