The Baggies boss does not plan on giving up his job, but admits it is not decision to make.

West Bromwich Albion head coach Tony Pulis insists his future lies in the hands of the club’s board after his side lost 4-0 to Chelsea, making it their fourth consecutive loss in the English top-flight.

The Baggies are currently sitting at the bottom of the table and if West Ham manage to beat Watford on Sunday that would send West Brom in the relegation zone.

The former Stoke City and Crystal Palace manager admitted he met with the owner and discussed the situation at the club as he hopes to have the chance to turn things around.

“The board of directors will decide what they have to do. It’s up to them,” Pulis told the BBC.

“I have been in this position before. I feel for the players, they have worked hard but they have made basic mistakes.

“I spoke to the owners yesterday and they are really decent people. It’s not about them, it’s about what’s best for the football club. That is more important than anybody.

“I’ll keep ploughing along if they want me to.”
