Mowbray not concerned by job security

Published Add your comment

Tony Mowbray has asked for no assurances about his future if West Brom are relegated from the Barclays Premier League and has his sights on developing a plan to ensure long-term success.

And the former Hibs boss will not compromise his footballing beliefs should bottom side Albion's fate be confirmed this weekend when they entertain Wigan.

Mowbray said: "If we go down is my future up for discussion? I haven't asked for any assurance and I haven't been given any. My thoughts are about trying to build teams. I try to carry through a philosophy. The only way for me is to have a long-term plan of how you want the club to go and then try and follow it through."

He added: "Ultimately the owners and chairman, when they think that is derailed, will make changes and they are well within their rights to do that.

"As coaches and managers, if you don't know where you are going you are in trouble and it's the same for club owners as well if they don't know where they are going, just jumping from one train to another, just hoping to get it right.

"If we are discussing the chairman, he and his board are the only ones who can decide whether they think the club is going in the right direction irrespective of what division we are in.

"That is their decision and their choice."
