As reported by Matt Wilson, of the Express and Star, Slaven Bilic spent some time on the pitch with young midfielder Kyle Edwards following the club’s 1-1 draw with Rotherham United. This sort of thing is only covered when Pep Guardiola does it, to the point where he is now a meme.

The 21-year-old made 11 appearances for The Baggies last season, scoring two goals. The youngster has previously spent time out on loan at Exeter City in an attempt to gain some experience.

Former Croatia manger Bilic joined Albion earlier this summer, having previously managed Ittihad in Saudi Arabia. The Croatian has previous experience in England, having both played and managed West Ham United.

A lot of West Brom fans are buzzing with their manager’s man management, and willingness to include young talent. Some Baggies fans are expecting Edwards to play a big part this season, calling him “Bilic’s golden boy”.

Here is the best of the reaction.
