Defender likely to leave if West Brom relegated

West Brom defender Carl Hoefkens admits it is highly likely he will leave at the end of the season if bottom of the table Baggies are relegated. "If we are relegated, the chances are high that I leave the club," Hoefkens told www.Sporza.be. "We had a bad weekend with the draw against Bolton because the teams close to us won.

"We should not give up, but that will not be easy. I was expecting more (this season) but we can only blame ourselves because our ranking is due to our mistakes.

"We have made a number of stupid defensive mistakes and lost many games."

Hoefkens has not played since the 3-2 home defeat to Newcastle on February 7 and added: "I don't understand why I lost my place in the starting eleven.

"When I played, we took many points. I have to respect the coach's choice but it's frustrating."
