'Oh my', 'would be a fantastic appointment': Some West Brom fans react as 41-year-old says he's 'ready'

West Brom fans have been praising Paul Scharner after the Baggies cult hero said he was “ready” to help out at The Hawthorns.

Albion are currently on the lookout for a new manager after Sam Allardyce left at the end of last season.

On Monday, West Brom also confirmed they had parted ways with technical director Luke Dowling by mutual consent.


The news came in wake of Albion’s failure to land both Chris Wilder and David Wagner.

And on Monday afternoon, Scharner took to Twitter with a message suggesting he’s open to a Hawthorns return.

West Brom fans seem interested

The Baggies faithful appreciated Scharner’s message and urged him to get in touch with the club.

A few urged him to tread carefully though.

Is Scharner a good shout?

Scharner played at West Brom between 2010 and 2012, making 62 appearances for the Baggies.

He has previously spoken about what he would do if he was installed as director of football at The Hawthorns.

Indeed, Scharner also shared his interest in the director of football role earlier this year.

In wake of a poor Premier League season and a difficult summer, the 41-year-old would certainly be a crowd-pleasing appointment.
