Scotland midfielder James Morrison has admitted he understands his West Brom team mate Saido Berahino’s desire to move to Tottenham but has demanded the striker show the Baggies respect.
Berahino – who scored 20 goals in all competitions last season – was involved in a heated deadline day tug of war between the two Premier League clubs, with it culminating in the forward threatening to go on strike on Twitter.
But Berahino has found an unlikely ally in Morrison, with both men said to have been involved in a dressing room scuffled last season, resulting Morrison punching his team mate, according to The Mirror.
You can’t knock him for wanting to go to Tottenham, but he should respect the club as they’ve been with him since a young age.
West Brom manager Tony Pulis has made efforts to repair the damage from last week’s controversy by dining with the striker and his mum earlier this week.
And Morrison added:
Tony is a good man and he’s a wise man as well, he’ll guide him through it and I am sure he’ll come out the other side.
