West Bromwich Albion boss Pepe Mel accepts he needs to prove himself to Premier League fans.
Mel is yet to taste victory since his appointment last month.
He said: â€œI am a very well-respected head coach in Spain and here I have to earn the right to be respected. Iâ€™m going to try and the only way I know is through hard work.
â€œThe public have been very kind towards me but I havenâ€™t yet proved anything. Itâ€™s down to me to prove myself to people.
â€œI knew it wasnâ€™t going to be easy with the situation with Nicolas Anelka, the injuries and the results, coupled with this being a new country for me with a new language and new culture.
â€œBut I want all the pressure to fall on me rather than the players. I have been in similar situations before in Spain and the only way to get out of them is by working hard."
