West Brom boss Irvine happy working with Burton

New West Bromwich Albion manager Alan Irvine is delighted to be working with Terry Burton.

Burton was recently appointed as WBA football director.

"Terry is someone I've respected as a coach from a distance for many years and I'm looking forward to working closely with him," Irvine said.

"The Hawthorns is a place I have been as a visiting manager and assistant manager, and it is always difficult to get a result.

"The fans are extremely passionate, terrific in getting behind the team, and I'm sure it is a great place to work as a player or a coach.

"I'm extremely excited about the challenge and I'll certainly give it everything I can. I'll work however many hours it takes to make things work."
