West Bromwich Albion faced Gateshead in third round of FA cup this weekend and demolished them 7 - 0. Man of the match was Saido Berahino without a doubt with his 4 goals against the team currently playing in Conference Premier League.
But this striker with origins from Burundi didn't celebrate any of his goals. Arrival of new manager Tony Pulis probably changed his ideas and plans to move to another, bigger club. Pulis thinks that WBA can keep this amazing England U-21 striker and bring some new players during the January transfer window: "We will sit and talk if we get some amazing bid from big team for Berahino but the club is expecting a lot of money to be offered. We don't have to sell players, team's business is good and we feel no pressure. That is why I think we can keep Berahino and bring few good players this month. I really hope he will stay with us and I feel confident to make him happy in Birmingham".\
Berahino definitely didn't like this statement of Pulis. He managed to score a hat-trick against Gateshead in opening 11 minutes. His refusal to celebrate goals is just illustration of his protest for the club administration because they want to keep him. Berahino stated for the local newspapers that he is just being a professional and there is no need to explain his non-celebration of goals. Allegedly, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are interested to see this young striker as member of their squads on summer.
WBA is currently 17th team on EPL table, doomed to fight against the relegation this season so it is probably not a good moment to sell the best player who scored 13 goals this season.
