New West Brom head coach Steve Clarke accepts he will have to develop a more ruthless streak as he prepares for his first season taking charge of a team.

Having always been an assistant during a coaching career lasting over a decade, the 48-year-old Scot now has full responsibility for his own decisions. He knows that means he will have to adapt the approach which has served him well under spells with Jose Mourinho, the late Sir Bobby Robson and, most recently, Kenny Dalglish.

"I think I will need to be a bit more selfish now I'm a head coach - I'll have to be very clear with my ideas," said Clarke, whose first competitive match in charge will be at home to his previous employers Liverpool. "I will also have to be a bit more ruthless."
