Pepe Mel has revealed he does not know if he will still be in charge of West Brom next season - even if he keeps them up.

Mel's men pulled off a vital 1-0 win at relegation rivals Norwich on Saturday, a result which cost counterpart Chris Hughton his job.

The build-up to the Carrow Road showdown was dominated by reports of a dressing room bust-up, but the three points appear to have drawn a line under those issues.

Mel - who was appointed on an 18-month contract as successor to Steve Clarke in January - insists he is thinking no further than the end of the season, with his future beyond May unclear.

Mel was asked if goalscorer Morgan Amalfitano, on loan from Marseille, was a player he would like to keep hold of next season.

And his reply revealed uncertainty over his own future at the Hawthorns.

"I don't know where I am going to be next season," he said.

"This is a different country, a different language, another way of doing things, but I said at the time (of my appointment) I would make sure that I met the objective (of staying up) and that is what is taking place.

"This is a league in which anyone can take points of anyone, you can take points off Chelsea and you can take points off Liverpool which is why it is the most competitive league in the world."
