Steve Clarke in contention to replace Roy Hodgson as West Brom manager

7th June 2012

• Former Liverpool assistant manager linked to vacancy
• Has also worked as number two at West Ham and Chelsea

The former Liverpool assistant Steve Clarke is in contention to replace Roy Hodgson as West Bromwich Albion’s new manager.

Albion have moved quickly to sound out Clarke after he left Anfield and sources close to the club believe he could even be appointed by the weekend.

The former Schalke manager Ralf Rangnick had looked set to take charge at the Hawthorns, but he appears to have dropped out of the running to succeed Hodgson.

Clarke has gained plenty of experience working as number two at Chelsea, West Ham and most recently at Liverpool under Kenny Dalglish, but the 48-year-old is believed to be keen to step into a managerial role.

Clarke would have a hard act to follow in Hodgson, who guided West Brom to a top-10 finish in the Premier League last season. It was Hodgson’s departure from Liverpool that led to Clarke moving to Anfield alongside Dalglish.

Among his first tasks would be to try and make goalkeeper Ben Foster’s loan move from Birmingham a permanent one, although he is also a target for QPR.
