West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino has revealed that he felt “lost’ after manager Steve Clarke’s departure, but then Alan Irvine restored his confidence.

The 21-year-old’s form went trailing off after the dismissal of Clarke, who was replaced by Spaniard Pepe Mel who only just kept the club in the English Premier League, amid reported off-field indiscretions.

And Berahino has said that West Brom are united again ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash with Burnley.

“I felt alone [last season], there was no-one I could go to and get advice from at the club,” Berahino is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail.

“I was thrown into a Premier League environment I didn’t know much about.”

“I was learning as I was going and losing Steve Clarke touched me. I kind of lost myself.”

“[But] everyone in the building gets on well with him [new coach Alan Irvine], from the staff in the kitchen to the players.”

“We needed someone like that to bring us all together.”
