West Bromwich Albion centre-forward Saido Berahino has been put on a special training regime to help him lose weight, and our punters here in the Transfer Tavern are surprised!
The news coming in from Sky Sports has absolutely shocked everyone here in the Transfer Tavern, not just the Baggies fans, as the striker is seen as such a high prospect.
Nevertheless, he is reportedly several pounds over-weight after the Midlands club conducted tests on him during the international break and he has now been put on a course to help him shift it.
He was not in the squad for the draw against Spurs at the weekend and has had weight issues in the past according to the report.
He has been linked with moves away from The Hawthorns in recent seasons with both Tottenham and Stoke reportedly interested, but a move has never come about and so now he must focus on trying to play for Tony Pulis’ side again.
The Baggies next game is away at Liverpool on Saturday.
Our landlord is worried about Berahino, and thinks the striker needs to get his act together soon, otherwise his playing career and future prospects could be in jeopardy.
