Steve Clarke has been revealed as the new manager of West Bromwich Albion just one day after it was confirmed that he was leaving his role at Liverpool.
The 48-year-old will take over from new England boss Roy Hodgson and has signed a two-year contract as he takes charge of a club for the very first time in his long coaching career.
Clarke has previously worked at Chelsea, Newcastle, West Ham and Liverpool, but in his 10 year spell of working with Premier League clubs, he has always worked as an assistant.
The Scot first became a coach back in 1998 when he retired from playing for Chelsea after 11 years at Stamford Bridge where he made 330 league appearances for the club.
He then had a spell as assistant manager at Newcastle United under Ruud Gullit before returning to his beloved Chelsea in 2004 to work alongside Jose Mourinho and then Avram Grant.
He later became assistant manager to Gianfranco Zola at West Ham before joining the coaching staff at Liverpool where he worked alongside his fellow Scot Kenny Dalglish.
West Brom have moved quickly to snap up Clarke with Norwich and Swansea both also currently looking for a new manager.
