West Brom boss Clarke convinced of Rosenberg impact

West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke insists striker Markus Rosenberg has a role to play this season.

Rosenberg has been playing catch up with his forward rivals all season due to the lateness of his arrival as a free agent in the summer.

"Some players just take a while to settle," Clarke told the WBA website. "I was at Chelsea when Drogba first came. In his first season, he was good but wasn't great.

"It also took Henry a year or so.

"It can take a while, especially for strikers who have to find different ways to find their space in the game.

"But Markus can do that. He is intelligent."
