West Bromwich Albion boss Pepe Mel admits he wasn't consulted ahead of the departure of Dave McDonough.
McDonough, who put Melâ€™s name forward to succeed Steve Clarke, was replaced as director of technical performance and scouting by David Gomez, Melâ€™s assistant at Real Betis.
Asked if he was consulted on McDonoughâ€™s removal, Mel said: "No. I thank him for the way he worked with me."
