Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has said today he completely understands why Saido Berahino – who was substituted at half time during the 2-0 defeat to Crystal Palace today – wanted to leave West Brom in the summer.
The controversial forward tried to force his way out of the club before deadline day with a £25 million move to Tottenham on the brink, however, things weren’t to be and Berahino was left looking a bit Peter Odemwingie-ish as he returned to the Hawthorns still a West Brom player despite reportedly travelling to London.
Things then threatened to get ugly as the England under-21 international took to Twitter to claim that he would never play under West Brom owner, Jeremy Pearce again.
Following the close of deadline day Berahino Tweeted saying: “Sad how I can’t say exactly how the club has treated me but I can officially say I will never play [for] Jeremy Pearce.”
And former England striker, Wright, has said in an interview with BT Sport that “it doesn’t seem like much fun” for Berahino at Albion.
