After a decade of coaching experience at a number of the top clubs in England, Steve Clarke was handed his first opportunity to manage in the Barclays Premier League when he was appointed at West Bromwich Albion before the 2012/13 season.
Clarke made over 400 appearances as a player for Chelsea over an 11-year period before retiring in 1998, and for his first coaching role he linked up with former Blues boss Ruud Gullit as assistant manager of Newcastle United.
He worked under the next manager at St James’ Park, Sir Bobby Robson, following Gullit’s departure in 1999, but he returned to Stamford Bridge the following season as a youth team coach and was promoted to assistant manager when Jose Mourinho was appointed as Chelsea manager in 2004.
Clarke helped Mourinho guide the Blues to their first two Premier League titles and he stayed at the club until former teammate Gianfranco Zola offered him the role of assistant manager at West Ham in 2008.
The ex-Chelsea defender was at the Boleyn Ground until the 2009/10 season before returning to the Premier League coaching set-up as Kenny Dalglish’s right-hand man at Liverpool in January 2011. The Reds won the League Cup in 2012, but he was handed the top job at West Brom before the start of the 2012/13 campaign.
Under Clarke’s tutelage, the Baggies earned a club record amount of victories in a Premier League season on their way to a top half finish. Clarke was relieved of his duties in December 2013 with the Baggies 16th in the table.
