Long dismisses speculation of move away from West Brom
West Brom striker Shane Long has shrugged off speculation about a January move. The Republic of Ireland international has been in impressive form, which has meant him being linked with several clubs, including Liverpool.
West Brom head coach Steve Clarke has said Long is going nowhere and the striker is adamant he is enjoying life at the Hawthorns.
“I’m just concentrating on my football, I’m enjoying playing up front, I love my job,” said Long. “It’s very enjoyable at the moment and I’ll let the rumours take care of themselves.”
West Brom were lying third in the league a fortnight ago before successive defeats to Swansea, Stoke and Arsenal.
Long is convinced Clarke’s side will soon return to winning ways.
“I think the only bad performance we have put in was during the first half against Swansea. Last week against Stoke it was just a horrible game and against Arsenal two penalties cost us.
“We’ve still got that confidence in us . . . We’ll forget about the last three results. We’re playing well, we’re confident on the ball. Once we get that rub of the green, results will start going our way.”
