Praise for Carroll!

Praise for Carroll!

As West Ham prepare to take on West Brom at the Hawthorns this afternoon, the Baggies boss has had a few kind words to say about Andy Carroll.

Pepe Mel, who has had a far from easy time since taking over from Steve Clarke at West Brom, reckons that Andy Carroll would be a huge success in Spanish football with Mel remarking to the media,

"Carroll really is a player of exceptional quality and I think he is a good option for the English team at the World Cup."

"What Carroll needs is to have good wingers who can put in crosses for him to finish - and in Italy and Spain there are some very good attacking sides."

"He could be successful outside of England, If you look at Diego Costa of Atletico, who plays in a very progressive way he really does fight and has been very successful in Spain and is highly respected."

"In Spain I think Andy Carroll could have some really great seasons and could be a really important player in a big Spanish side."


Praise indeed from the West Brom manager, I wonder what his views will be if Andy scores the winner this afternoon?
