New West Brom head coach Steve Clarke plans to use the very best of what he has learned from the likes of Jose Mourinho, Sir Bobby Robson and Kenny Dalglish to be a success at the Hawthorns.

The 48-year-old Scot has signed a two-year contract to become Roy Hodgson's successor and take his first job as a number one after over a decade as an assistant.

"Becoming a head coach in my own right has always been an ambition of mine and I feel I have served my apprenticeship," said Clarke, who has spent 14 years coaching at Chelsea, Newcastle, West Ham and most recently Liverpool.
