Transfer Rater: Riyad Mahrez to Monaco


Rosenberg eager for West Brom stay

Markus Rosenberg wants Steve Clarke to give him another chance next season to prove he can cope with the demands of Premier League football.

Markus Rosenberg: A key to West Brom's chances this season.
Rosenberg has struggled to make an impact at West Brom

Rosenberg’s first season in England, following his free transfer from Werder Bremen last summer, has been a hugely frustrating experience with the 30-year-old starting just four games at West Bromwich Albion.

The Sweden international admits that despite signing a three-year contract, his future remains uncertain because of his lack of impact, but he has no intentions of asking for a move away from The Hawthorns when he holds talks with Clarke in the next few weeks regarding the future.

Rosenberg has started the last two games against Wigan and Manchester City and has demonstrated the ability which persuaded Clarke to sign him last summer - and he hopes that may encourage the club to give him a second chance next season.

“I hope I’m still here next season. My dream is to still be here. That’s why I signed for three years. My dream is to stay here and play like I have played for the last two games for a whole season,” Rosenberg said.

“That is my dream but, like I said to the gaffer, I still want to play football. My hope is to stay here and fulfil my contract.”

Rosenberg will hold discussions with Clarke over the next couple of weeks and has intimated that unless he feels he will be given more game time next season, he could be forced to consider a move.

“I need to have more game time than I’ve had this year and that’s what I need to discuss with the head coach. I’m not so young anymore so I will have to sit down with the coach and with my agent and discuss the future,” he said.

“It is difficult for me to talk after starting two games, but if you look back at the season it’s been a terrible one. I have never experienced this before. I have always played wherever I was so it’s been a tough year mentally.

“Normally you come out stronger after a year like this but still I want to play football. You have to get more minutes on the pitch to get the feeling right to score when you have chances.”
