WHILE West Brom manager Steve Clarke was able to give debuts to new signings Victor Anichebe and Morgan Amalfitano, Stephane Sessegnon missed out due to a “glitch” in his work permit application – rumoured to be that his name was spelt wrongly on the form.
The Benin international was unable to take the field against Fulham this Saturday, andalthough the spelling error was not confirmed, his new boss said: “When you transfer from one club to another you have to re-apply for your work permit.
“There was a little glitch in the process yesterday that delayed it and unfortunately for us he was not available for this game.
“Hopefully it will be resolved over the weekend or early next week at the latest and he’ll be available to face his old club Sunderland next Saturday.”
I bet whoever filled out that form feels a right plokner now.
