West Brom boss Clarke hails 5-star Amalfitano debut

West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke was delighted with the home debut of Morgan Amalfitano on Saturday.

The Frenchman scored in the 3-0 rout of Sunderland.

Clarke said: "He's a clever player, he's not an out-and-out winger, but he knows the role wide.

"One of the reasons we brought him is because his record of assists in the French league is good.

"He had a hand in all three goals - he set up two and got a little bonus by scoring himself at the end.

"I'm pleased that he had a home debut like that."
