Six games in charge and West Brom boss Mel under pressure

The future of West Bromwich Albion boss Pepe Mel is looking bleak after just six games in the hot-seat. The Spaniard was appointed on 9 January but the Baggies are yet to win under him and are just a point above the Premier League relegation places.

Senior players have expressed their concerns to Mel after struggling to adapt to the 50-year-old's preference for a high-tempo pressing game.

It is understood the players' preference is to adopt the Baggies usual counter-attacking style, which helped them finish eighth last season and 10th the previous term.
