West Bromwich Albion head coach Pepe Mel insists that he has no intention of making a return to former club Real Betis.

West Bromwich Albion head coach Pepe Mel has revealed that he sees his managerial future in England.

Mel has been linked with a return to former club Real Betis, but the Spaniard has insisted that he wouldn't consider a second spell with the La Liga outfit, who are facing relegation from the top flight.

The 51-year-old is quoted by the Birmingham Mail as saying: "I wouldn't consider returning. Unfortunately, you can't go back on things that you've already done in the past.

"Now my mind is fully focused on West Brom. For me, it's not a possibility to go back to Betis - it's not an option for me.

"I want to stay here, I see my future in England."

Mel has won just two of his 12 matches in charge at The Hawthorns.
