West Brom great Robertson urges Baggies to choose Man Utd chief Fletcher as next manager

West Brom great Ally Robertson feels they should move for Manchester United technical director Darren Fletcher as next manager.

For Robertson a young boss with fresh ideas is better than one plucked from the managerial merry-go-round.

"I'm not against us appointing someone who is just starting out in management," said Robertson to the Express & Star.

"The search has not been a straightforward one. There have been a few issues.

"There have been problems behind the scenes and I'm worried we won't attract a manager with experience unless they have struggled in the past.

"For me we are at a point where we need to start thinking long-term. We need a clear plan.

"So I would be looking at a good professional who knows the game and has strong connections with clubs in the Premier League.

"Maybe someone like a Darren Fletcher who knows everything going on at Manchester United and would know some 20, 21, 22-years-old to buy or loan.

"I don't think a big manager will come so I think we have to look for someone who has the potential to be a big manager."
