Ismael named West Brom head coach

Unique are delighted to confirm that Valerien Ismael has been appointed as the new head coach of West Bromwich Albion.

The 45-year-old has signed a four-year contract at the Hawthorns, following a successful 2020/21 season where he led Barnsley to the Championship play-offs after finishing 5th in the table.

“I feel really proud to have accepted this challenge,” Ismael said. “I feel a big responsibility but I’m ready for this job and I am delighted to be here.

“I know a lot about the club’s history and the atmosphere at The Hawthorns, which is an amazing stadium, and the fans make it a special place to play.

“This was the next step I wanted to take in my career and I’m ready to work with everyone at this club. Although there’s going to be a lot of hard work this season, I am excited for the big task in front of us.”

Everyone at Unique wishes Valerien the best of luck for the forthcoming season.
