West Brom puts Saido Berahino on special fitness regime because of weight concerns


West Brom forward Saido Berahino has been put on a special training program due to concerns over his weight.

Berahino has struggled with his weight over the past two years and has had a strained relationship with West Brom since his failed transfer to Tottenham in 2015.

The forward enjoyed great success with West Brom in 2014 as he scored 14 goals while appearing in 38 matches. In 2015, as rumors of a transfer began to surface Berahino played in 31 matches for West Brom, but only started 17 and scored just four goals.

Berahino’s form has further deteriorated this season as he has played in just four of West Brom’s eight matches, making three starts. He has recorded just two shots and has not scored in those appearances.

The forward was left out of West Brom’s team this past weekend and it is unclear whether he will be in the squad for West Brom’s match against Liverpool this Saturday.
