‘They had some beers!’ West Brom manager Pepe Mel diffuses James Morrison – Saido Berahino punch-up
Pepe Mel was confronted with his first real dressing room ‘situation’ last weekend, when James Morrison punched Saido Berahino after the latter refused to apologise for his mistake that cost West Brom 2 points against Cardiff.
But the Spaniard was keen to play the whole thing down, dismissing it as a bit of a storm in a teacup.
Mel says he’d rather have players in his squad who confront each other over issues rather than shirk away from their problems.
Mel says they had a few beers afterwards and it was all quickly forgotten; water under the bridge.
