The Pak Banker - - INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS/SPORTS -

Tony Pulis has been ap­pointed as the new head coach of West Bromwich Al­bion on a twoand-a-half-year con­tract, the Premier League strug­glers an­nounced on Thurs­day. The 56-yearold for­mer Stoke City and Crys­tal Palace man­ager re­places Alan Irvine, who was sacked on Mon­day after a run of seven de­feats in nine matches that left the club just a point above the rel­e­ga­tion zone. "I'm ab­so­lutely de­lighted to ac­cept the job and I do so with a sim­ple but im­por­tant mes­sage for the Al­bions fans and ev­ery­one at the club," the Welsh­man said in a state­ment on the club web­site. "Ev­ery suc­cess­ful club is built on unity and that is what I shall strive to help bring to Al­bion. We need ev­ery­one to­gether from top to bot­tom -- the sup­port­ers, all the staff, the play­ers, ev­ery­one who has an in­ter­est in the club's wel­fare. "With that, we can go for­ward to­gether and hope­fully take this club up the Premier League."
