Olsson: So easy to have pop at West Brom boss Mel

West Bromwich Albion defender Jonas Olsson has hit back at critics of manager Pepe Mel.

Mel guided WBA to victory at Swansea City on Saturday.

Olsson said: "It is easy to kick someone when they are down. It has been tough for him so I am very happy for the gaffer and the coaching staff.

"The last couple of weeks have been very difficult so it is nice when you feel that everyone, the coaching staff and players, have done really well.

"We are an honest group. We are focusing on our bit which is sticking together and trying to go out there each week and turn things around."
