West Bromwich Albion chief Richard Garlick feels new coach Pepe Mel is the right fit for the club.
Despite the former Real Betis bossâ€™s lack of experience in English football, Garlick has defended the clubâ€™s decision to appoint him as Steve Clarkeâ€™s replacement.
â€śI think any appointment is risky,â€ť said Garlick. â€śBut we did our due diligence, we met Pepe and interviewed him and we went through an extensive process.
â€śAnd what Pepe has got is Keith Downing and Dean Kiely, who have been here at the club for five or six years, and who know the players.
â€śI donâ€™t see it as a risk as such. I see it as somebody who will come in and be pragmatic.â€ť
