Bruno believes Albion are ready to move forward.

And he would love to be part of it behind the scenes.

The former skipper has been bitten by the coaching bug having initially been unsure of what his future held when he hung up his boots last year.

He says he has relished the playing style introduced by head coach Graham Potter and his team.

And he is confident it will help the club stay up and progress in the Premier League.

Albion are still not sure of survival after a weekend when results went against them.

But they are a handy five points clear of 18th place thanks to a positive return from a 15-week halt to the season.

Bruno said: “It is really important to realise there is nothing wrong with being more or less defensive.

“Chris (Hughton) did an amazing job and we achieved something really big.

“The club decided to move on in another direction.

“I think with Graham, Bjorn (Hamberg) and Billy (Reid) working so hard, we achieved getting an even better team playing in another way.

“When you change something, this is because you are trying to get better.

“The aim of the club is to get better and that is what Graham has achieved in terms of football.

“Better stats, a different style of football.

“I think the club and the team is in a good place because they have really solid foundations to build on.”
