Mowbray still the man, says Greening

West Brom captain Jonathan Greening has given his backing to manager Tony Mowbray and insisted the ex Hibernian boss would be "a wanted man" if he ever left The Hawthorns.

Albion find themselves at the bottom of the Barclays Premier League at a time when Roy Keane has quit as Sunderland manager and Paul Ince appears to be under increasing pressure at Blackburn to turn results around.

Greening told PA Sport: "Tony Mowbray is a top guy, a top coach and any club would want him, the style of football he plays, his passion for the game - and he would be under no pressure because he is probably a wanted guy."

He added: "He is one of the best coaches I have ever worked with and he likes to play the right way and every day is enjoyable and it is a pleasure to come into work.

"I'd be very surprised if he gets under pressure because what he has done over the last couple of years has been fantastic.

"I've been near the bottom of the league at Middlesbrough when Steve McClaren was under pressure and Bryan Robson at West Brom the year we went down.

"But the gaffer is big enough to take it on the chin. He loves the game, he loves the pressure and we all want to play for him. There is no doubt about that. Everyone wants to do well for him.

"The fans have also been brilliant. They have been brilliant since I've been here.

"We've had some ups and downs but they've always given us 120%. I am sure they love the manager just as much as the players do. No question about that."
