West Brom boss Mel explains benching Sinclair

West Bromwich Albion boss Pepe Mel has explained leaving Scott Sinclair on the bench for their draw with Fulham.

Mel has revealed he has held one-to-one talks with Scott Sinclair - and insists the winger remains part of his plans.

"On Friday Scott Sinclair spoke with me," Mel told the WBA website. "I told him he is a good player, a good winger.

"At the moment West Brom need hard work on the pitch. But I assured Scott Sinclair he will play in the future.

"It is normal he is disappointed he is not playing.

"But I can only pick 11 and it is difficult every day."
