Report: West Brom set sights on 'remarkable' 52-year-old manager
West Bromwich Albion have reportedly set their sights on Slavisa Jokanovic, according to The Star.
The Baggies are on the lookout for a new manager in wake of Sam Allardyce’s departure.
With the Baggies losing their Premier League battle, the club made the 66-year-old an offer to stay on.
However, he didn’t accept as he can’t commit to the project at this stage of his career.
According to The Star, Jokanovic is currently on Sheffield United’s radar, but is also being “monitored” by West Brom.
Luke Dowling, now sporting director at The Hawthorns, worked with the 52-year-old at Watford.
The Serb’s contract with Qatari club Al-Gharafa is about to expire.
Jokanovic is a good shout for West Brom, given his role in steering Watford and Fulham to promotion.
At the time, Cottagers icon Danny Murphy praised his “remarkable” efforts in winning the playoffs while playing exciting football.
“This season one of the things the manager has done is stay true to his beliefs in the type of football they play,” Murphy told the Premier League website.
“What they’ve done in recent months has been remarkable.”
